The Direct Support Professional Recognition Award is a great opportunity to highlight the dedicated, innovative direct support workforce. We hope that you will use this opportunity to highlight the important work of DSP First Name and all DSPs on the well-deserved recognition of their work.

We wanted to give you access to tools that you can use in your organization’s newsletters and outreach to your local press. The toolkit includes a template press release, sample tweets, and suggested language to post on social media, such as Facebook.
