For the past several years, the American Network of Community Options and Resources (ANCOR) has recognized outstanding Direct Support Professionals (DSP) as a part of their National Advocacy Campaign. These awards not only honor those individuals that enrich the lives of the people with disabilities they serve, but also draw attention to the need to increase resources to support an exceptional Direct Support workforce.
Nominating a member of your staff for the ANCOR DSP Recognition Award is an excellent way to boost morale and to identify the qualities that you feel make a truly outstanding DSP. As all nominees are considered "finalists," it is also a way to showcase your organization and educate the public on the importance of the DSP workforce and the value they bring to their communities. Please note that nominations are only accepted online through the ANCOR DSP Awards Form, and the deadline for submission is Friday, December 12.
