DSP Appreciation Picnic
In September, Enable held its annual picnic to honor the front line Direct Support Professionals (DSP) who work directly with our consumers. Nearly 200 Enable staff, consumers and volunteers enjoyed delicious barbecue from award winning food truck, "Mary the Queen of Pork," music and dancing by Showstoppers Plus, and frozen treats from Kona Ice. Many thanks to the Bloomberg volunteers for helping out with our picnic. Additionally, the picnic is when Enable awards our DSP and Manager of the Year.
