Chris Sparks Receives ANCOR's Suellen Galbraith Award for Excellence in Public Policity
Congratulations to Abby Getz, Ciara Oder, and Gwen Lewis, they have been nominated for the American Network of Community Options and Resources (ANCOR) Direct Support Professional (DSP) of the year - a national recognition.
As a field we are in the midst of massive and continuous change, each item challenging individually but truly overwhelming when taken as a whole. It is important to note that not all of these are bad, in fact some of them are both welcome and exciting, but they still represent significant challenges that make our professional lives stressful.
People with disabilities have had and still have to work daily to overcome discrimination and unfair treatment. As we celebrate the 25th Anniversary of the ADA, we are reminded that President Bush stated at the signing of the bill, "Let the shameful walls of exclusion finally come tumbling down."
EPI's very own Chris Sparks has recently become the President of the American Network of Community Options and Resources (ANCOR) Board of Directors.
Direct Support Staff (DSPs) are the true backbone of the organization, showing everyday their willingness to go above and beyond to support the individuals served.
On May 6, the American Network of Community Options and Resources (ANCOR) recognized Mitch Tyler of Exceptional Persons, Inc. in Waterloo as the 2014 Direct Support Professional of the Year for Iowa.
In just under five years with EPI, Leanna Haahr has accomplished quite a bit. If you asked her what stands out the most in her growing list of accomplishments she'd most likely tell you “the job I do every day as a Direct Support Professional (DSP) - helping the persons I serve be as independent as possible.”
