Not All Heroes Wear Capes
Heroes come in many forms. There’s the impossibly perfect, classical type, possessing supernatural powers while single-handedly avenging evil. There are heroes of war, noted for their feats of courage and nobility. And, there are everyday heroes…people who might not realize the impact they make through seemingly small acts of kindness and an ongoing commitment to support another’s needs.
We see these heroes in homes and in communities. They’re present at the grocery store, the bank, the doctor’s office, and even the bowling alley. These heroes are direct support professionals.
Direct support professionals (DSPs) are lifesavers to the people they support and their families. They make a daily impact, helping others to live self directed lives, to contribute to the community and to make big dreams and small ambitions come true.
ACHIEVA recognizes and thanks DSPs for the selfless role they take. We recognize, not all heroes wear capes.
