The Community Provider Network of Rhode Island (CPNRI) will celebrate the contributions and tireless work for Direct Support Professionals (DSP) during National DSP Recognition Week from September 10 – 16, 2017.
The week will culminate with an awards reception honoring DSPs of the year from each member of agency of CPNRI on Thursday, September 14, 2017 at the Roger Williams Casino from 5pm-9pm. The event will serve to honor the work of direct support professionals who provide services to people with intellectual and developmental disabilities in our community. Attendees will include DSP of the year awardees, awardees receiving special recognitions and their families, public officials, and individuals supported by the agencies that comprise CPNRI and their families.
DSP Recognition Week is a part of CPNRI’s campaign to support and better serve members of RI’s developmental disability community. This week is celebrated annually across the country with special events and ceremonies like this, specifically to honor the tens of thousands of workers who enable people with intellectual, developmental and other significant disabilities and their families to live healthy lives in their communities.
