Governor Issues Proclamation for Direct Support Professionals Recognition
September 1, 2011

Governor Tom Corbett has declared the week of September 11-17, 2011 as Direct Support Professionals Recognition Week. This recognition offers the opportunity to express appreciation for the work of community provider staff caring for individuals with disabilities.

Direct support professionals provide daily assistance to individuals diagnosed with intellectual, developmental, or physical disabilities. These supports give persons the ability to live in their communities rather than institutional settings. Direct support staff are the “unsung heroes” responsible for health, safety,and helping individuals maintain their independence.

A copy of the Governor’s Proclamation is available from the link.
