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.

Direct Support Professional
Indiana MENTOR

“I enjoy seeing the personal growth and success of the individuals we serve. The smile on their faces after they achieve something makes my day and I enjoy seeing them maintain their independence—it is very rewarding. One of my favorite things to do with them is to go out with Fishing Has No Boundaries. The guys love it.  They boat and they fish and we spend the night in a cabin. It’s a great adventure that they talk about for days afterwards.”

“I enjoy assisting the individuals we serve in accomplishing their goals.  They teach me as much, if not more, than I teach them.  One thing I have learned is that one person’s bump is another’s mountain.”
