Direct Support Professionals Week

It's that time of year again, when we come together to recognize the incredible individuals who make a profound difference in the lives of those we serve. Direct Support Professionals Week has arrived, and at TASC, we couldn't be more thrilled to honor the dedicated and compassionate DSPs who are at the heart of our organization.

Direct Support Professionals Week, observed annually from September 10th to 16th, is a time to recognize and express our gratitude to the exceptional caregivers who provide unwavering support to individuals with developmental disabilities. These remarkable individuals work tirelessly to ensure that the people we serve lead fulfilling lives and enjoy the same opportunities as everyone else.

TASC celebrated our DSPs each day this week with raffles, breakfast from Porto's, t-shirt and custom sticker giveaways, and popsicles and ice cream. As DSP Week comes to a close, let's remember that their impact extends far beyond this special week. They truly are the heart of our community, and we're grateful for everything they do.
