    The ANCOR Connected Community (ACC) is a wonderful resource that connects you to other Direct Support Professionals who are passionate about serving people with intellectual and developmental disabilities.

    Take Action

    Take advantage of the ANCOR Action Center. Enter your zip code to receive the contact information for your U.S. Senators and your Representative. Email, call, or even better yet visit them to tell them your story!

    Many elected officials are unaware of the issues that affect the workforce. Take the time to explain the facts to them. Remember to include a personal story. Personal stories create the passion and motivation that help things get accomplished.

    ANCOR’S National Advocacy Campaign (NAC) is broadening its reach every day, but it is a grassroots movement with limited resources. Please contribute today to help the NAC give the direct support workforce a national voice while building grassroots support for the workforce. Join with those who have pledged to make a difference for DSPs by supporting efforts for a livable wage.
