Yesterday started the celebration of DSP week which is occurring nationwide between September 10th through September 16th. It is a time to reflect on how essential all of our Direct Support Professionals are and how much we count on each and every one of you. As part of our commitment to supporting our DSP’s, each one of you will receive a free membership to the National Alliance for Direct Support Professionals (https://www.nadsp.org/) in order to provide you with resources to increase your skills and position yourself for growth opportunities.
On behalf of myself, the Board of Directors and the entire Management Team, I would like to say thank you to all of our staff for your tireless efforts to provide skilled and compassionate supports. Your dedication and commitment is essential to the success of the CRVI’s New Directions… New Lives initiative and the people we support. The quality of CRVI is defined at the point of interaction between the people we support and our DSP’s.
We are proud of your ongoing commitment to provide the highest quality of life to the people we support. To acknowledge our appreciation for Direct Support Professionals, Full Time DSP’s received a $100 bonus net of taxes, Part Time and Relief DSP’s received a $50 bonus net of taxes. I have also sent each DSP a personal thank you letter.
The future of CRVI relies on teamwork and excellence. Thank you for your dedication to our mission. Keep up the great work!
