From September 7th through the 14th, Jawonio will join with many of our sister agencies around the region and our country to recognize a significant segment of our workforce during National Direct Support Professional Recognition Week.
As a Direct Support Professional, you offer a wide range of quality and compassionate services on a daily basis so that individuals with special needs can live, work and play throughout the communities we serve. Most importantly, your role supports each individual’s right to be included as full and equal members of our society. Every Direct Support Professional has the ability everyday to make a positive contribution to the people who come to us for services –and You Do!
Out of respect for your work and profession, I wanted to take this opportunity to recognize you for the immeasurable difference you make each and every day in the lives of people in your care.
Therefore, on behalf of our board of directors, and all of us at Jawonio, thank you for your dedication and commitment to our most vulnerable citizens and for the vital work you do.
