Carolyn Newton’s smile and positive outlook has been an integral part of her position as a Direct Support Professional (DSP) at Opengate since 2013. She works with a contagious enthusiasm that is felt among those she cares for as well as her co-workers.
For readers who aren’t familiar with the social media hashtag #bFair2DirectCare, it’s become the voice of a campaign for 130,000 New Yorkers with intellectual/developmental disabilities and nearly 100,000 Direct Support Professionals (DSPs) who care for them.
Once again, Opengate is participating in the social media campaign, #GivingTuesday which occurs the Tuesday after Thanksgiving, after Black Friday and Cyber Monday, as a way to kick off charity giving at the end of each year.
Congratulations to Lim Kebe for being voted the Employee of the Month for September 2017!
Recently our individuals were treated (not tricked) to a spectacular evening at the Great Jack-O-Lantern Blaze at the Van Cortlandt Manor in Croton-on-Hudson, NY.
