Happy Direct Support Professional Recognition Week!
In honor of the important work our DSPs do each and every day, here are some extraordinary DSPs we are fortunate enough to have at Opportunity Partners.
“I love getting to know the folks we support – what they like, what they don’t, and figure out little things that I can do that bring them joy. I like that I get to work directly with people – sometimes in a management capacity, in my experience I didn’t always get to spend a lot of time with the folks supported by OP. It’s nice to actually spend time with people, and when I have an idea, I can see it come to life, rather than pass it along to someone else and maybe hear about it later or maybe not.”
“The variety of people I see daily and the flexibility I have to prioritize where I need to be. I truly enjoy the people we serve and the challenges they can present medically, and at times behaviorally. The rewards of success always amaze me.”
“They say if you love what you do, you’ll never work a day in your life. I haven’t been able to work in about a year and a half. I love what I do.”
“The best thing about working at Opportunity Partners is the one constant ‘teamwork.’ Everyone is willing to help at all times. For instance, I was lost at Koch and not only did persons served offer a helping hand, but staff as well. Aslo the training provided is amazing. I can take what I learned here and execute it anywhere. Anyone working here will be a better person when or if they leave.”
