Throughout September, The MENTOR Network continues our annual tradition of honoring Direct Support Professionals (DSPs), Life Skills Trainers and others who work in crucial direct support roles across The Network. Beginning September 12, we also mark National Direct Support Professional Recognition Week.
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
