The Best Part of Being a DSP

“This job is way more than just an income. The experience you take home each night is indescribable. You learn so much and yet you don’t even realize it. My clients mean everything to me and if it wasn’t for them I have no idea where I would be today. My job is way more than just a career, it’s my family and my home!” ~Courtney, Team Manager

“People genuinely care about each other. Whether something is personal or work related, individuals will help to make you better than you have ever been, so you can help others see the worth in themselves.” ~Robin, DSP

“It doesn’t feel like work. It feels like I’m with friends and family, having a good time in the community we live in.” ~Kristen, Community Engagement Coordinator
