“The backbone that keeps us strong!” was an obvious theme for the 2019 DSP Recognition week at Opengate, September 8-14.
Each day we honored our amazing Direct Support Professionals (DSPs) and the work they do daily to support our individuals. They are literally the backbone of our agency and the heart and soul of all we do.
Our DSPs were recognized during this special week with luncheons, gatherings and gifts to show our heartfelt appreciation. Several pieces of artwork were created to express in pictures and words what a difference each DSP makes in the life of those in our care. As you can see, the messages are inspiring.
In addition, a cake was created using one of the art pieces illustrating the theme, “The Backbone That Keeps Us Strong.” Opengate’s DSPs are truly our greatest asset and play an important part in the daily quality of life of our individuals.
Opengate DSPs are appreciated every day, but we are proud that there is a special week across the nation in their honor. Thank you, each and every one, for supporting those who need a compassionate hand.
