Governor Proclaims September 12-19 Direct Support Professionals Week
August 12, 2010

Governor Rendell has proclaimed the week of September 12 as Direct Support Professional Recognition Week. The designation was the result of a joint effort between ANCOR, who spearheaded the effort nationally and PCPA, who worked with the governor’s office to move the initiative forward.   The proclamation highlights the dedicated staff assisting individuals with physical, developmental, and intellectual disabilities as “Everyday Heroes.”

PCPA encourages members to observe Direct Support Professional Recognition Week locally.  ANCOR has provided a poster and a list of ten ideas to celebrate the “everyday heroes” serving in member agencies. PCPA also encourages members to share individual stories about direct support professional staff to be featured in the PCPA Provider News. Further questions may be addressed to Anne Leisure or Linda Drummond.
