Thank you, Direct Service Professionals!
Direct Service Professionals are the backbone of Ohio's DD system. They provide 1:1 supports for our family, friends, and neighbors with intellectual or developmental disabilities every day. During the COVID pandemic, everyone -- including our local DSP's -- have been confronted with new challenges and have found creative ways to continue serving the people we all care about. This is for our DSP's. Thank you.
