OCCK celebrates National Direct Support Professional week
BELOIT – OCCK is among the many organizations across the country to be celebrating Direct Support Professional (DSP) week, which has been designated as Sept. 8-14.
National Direct Support Professional Recognition Week is celebrated annually across the country with special events and ceremonies earmarked to honor the tens of thousands of workers who enable people with intellectual, developmental and other significant disabilities and their families to live healthy community-oriented lives.
OCCK’s DSP’s are the backbone of our agency. DSP’s work with individuals in their homes - teaching and assisting them with daily living skills (household skills, budgeting, personal hygiene skills, and medications). They also assist individuals with accessing the community for medical appointments, shopping, and leisure activities in the community. They are instrumental in developing positive relationship with the families and community.
OCCK thank their DSP’s for their dedication, creativity, and advocacy to ensure people with disabilities have the necessary supports to live, work, and enjoy life more independently in the community.
In February of 2020, OCCK will be celebrating its 50th anniversary of providing services to people with disabilities. Through strong partnerships with community services and resources help to ensure people with disabilities have the opportunity to be an integral part of the communities they choose to live in.
