Celebrating Our Staff During Direct Support Professional Week 2020

This week, we thanked those at the heart of our organization: our direct support professionals.

This year, Direct Support Professional Week looked a little different. There were no in-person training topics to review or luncheons to gather at with old coworkers. Due to COVID-19, we had to be creative when it came to planning this year’s recognition week, September 13 - 19, 2020.

DSP Week is our time to thank our direct care staff for all they do for the Phoenix organization and the house they work at. Although some training is required (virtual this year), we did try to make it a fun week for the DSPs! We sprinkled the week with fun videos, T-shirts, and gift bags for all our direct support professionals. They even received a surprise bonus at the end of the week—all thanks to YOUR donations to our Close the Gap campaign!

And this is why our Close the Gap campaign is so important! Because the campaign advocates for fair wages for our direct support professionals, all the funds we raise for this campaign go directly back to our staff members. Thank you for making this possible!

Thank you to all our staff for everything you do!
