Governor Tom Wolf has signed an official proclamation dedicating the week of September 11 through September 17, 2022, as Direct Support Professional (DSP) Recognition Week. The proclamation, available to read here, recognizes the vital contributions DSPs provide to address the physical and mental health of individuals with disabilities as well as veterans and senior citizens. Furthermore, the Governor recognizes the immense care it takes for DSPs to develop close, respectful, and trusted relationships with those they support.
