What our DSPs are saying
“[The job] gives back to me because it teaches me how to love more, to give more, and to help more, and to understand that you are doing a good deed when you help somebody”
“I love the people I work with. They’re like my family. I feel like they’re part of me.”
“The thing that keeps us going is that you remember one thing: that you are there to change the lives of those people you support, you’re there to make their lives better.”
