20 Sep DSP Week 2022
On September 12th-16th, we celebrated our amazing Direct Support Professionals (DSPs) for the incredible work they do every day. This is an annual celebration event where we honor these hard-working individuals. At New Hope of Indiana, around 73% of our 335 employees are DSPs. Therefore, our mission largely depends on their service!
To celebrate, some of our employees decorated the hallway near the employee entrance. Bright sunflowers with notes of ‘thanks’ were posted on the walls and balloons, paper kites, banners, and artwork drawn by individuals we served by New Hope were hung as well. DSPs also received a thank you gift that included a NHI branded cooler with snacks and a gift card inside.
While we celebrated our DSPs, they were hard at work updating their skills by attending trainings to ensure the individuals they serve receive the highest level of care. Throughout the week, around 230 DSPs cycled in and out of the building to complete their compliance trainings. They also had the opportunity to visit the Success Navigator information table to learn more about this program that is designed to help New Hope associates achieve their personal and professional goals. Overall, it was a great week for celebration and learning!
