DSP of the Week: Amanda Julian, Indiana MENTOR “I enjoy interacting with the individuals we serve and watching them thrive in their daily living activities. It is very rewarding. The relationships formed and memories made will never be forgotten! Helping with #SpecialOlympics, taking the individuals to practice, and seeing them interacting in the community is one of my favorite activities. We also enjoy going to fairs, #MiracleLeague, parades, cookouts and many other events.” thementornetwork.com/our-stories/dsp-week/... See MoreSee Less
DSP of the Week: Kristy Schwittay, REM Wisconsin “A DSP is a great job that allows you to learn how to work with individuals with intellectual, developmental and physical disabilities. It’s such a great and rewarding experience! Each and every "client" in my eyes is nothing less than family! We love to go sightseeing together and go to parks. Any place with fishing attire makes one of my clients ecstatic and just to see him smile is a reward in itself. I am very blessed to have the position I do. My heart and passion is dedicated 100% to the care, safety and love for each individual! This isn't a job, it’s a passion.” thementornetwork.com/our-stories/dsp-week/... See MoreSee Less
