Each year the American Network of Community Options and Resources (ANCOR), the national association representing providers of community-based services to people with disabilities, chooses a Direct Support Professional from each state to be recognized for their outstanding contributions to the people they serve. Nominees are judged on their success in helping people with disabilities build social networks and engage in substantive community participation and for advocating for the people they serve.
The MENTOR Network is proud to announce that our own Peter Mullaney, a Program Coordinator from REM Iowa, was chosen as ANCOR’s 2016 Iowa Direct Support Professional of the Year. On behalf of all of us at The Network, congratulations, Peter, and thank you for all you do each day to help the people you serve live life to the fullest.
This year, 15 other staff members from The Network were also nominated by their colleagues for the Direct Support Professional of the Year award for their states. We invite you to meet all of our outstanding nominees and see how they’re making a difference each day for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities.
