The MENTOR Network

DSP of the Week

At The MENTOR Network, we believe that our Direct Support Professionals—who help carry out The Network’s mission every day—should be valued, supported and recognized for a job well done. That’s why we’re honoring our direct support workforce and the tremendous difference they make each day in the lives of thousands of individuals we serve.

Each week, we’re recognizing one of our remarkable DSPs. Please take a moment to meet these talented individuals and remember to thank them for their commitment to the individuals we serve.
