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.
The MENTOR Network recognizes the anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act, which has opened doors for millions of Americans to pursue employment, access services and participate equally in community life.
DSP of the Week: Jennifer DiTaranto, REM New Jersey “What I enjoy most about working in a direct support role is helping the individuals we serve learn new things and knowing when they say ‘thank you’ that they really appreciate everything you do for them. Out in the community, I like taking the individuals to the movies, park, mall—basically any place that makes them smile and laugh. They should enjoy life to the fullest!” thementornetwork.com/our-stories/dsp-week/... See MoreSee Less
