NATIONWIDE (March, 14, 2014) – Each year, ANCOR, the national association for providers of services to people with developmental and other disabilities, honors one Direct Support Professional (DSP) from each state, along with a National DSP of the Year, for exemplifying the high calling of the profession.

This year ResCare operations nominated 130 DSPs from 34 states and Canada who have developed strong relationships with and advocated for the people they serve and used a lot of creativity along the way. View ResCare’s DSP nominees and read their stories here.

Each of them deserves a round of applause for the contributions they make every day to the lives of individuals who depend on them.

Stay tuned for further information about DSP of the Year state and national winners coming soon.
