Historically, Direct Support Professionals (DSPs) served as caregivers for the individuals they supported. Leaving society with the perception that the DSP role was to "take care of" the day-to-day needs of those needing "taken care of".
After graduating EPI services, Maggie came back to provide services herself.
Join in on the celebration! The annual week-long celebration of direct support professionals (DSPs) takes place September 10 - 16, 2023.
While we still have work to do, we're making some great progress. We're happy to share our early indicators are very promising. We've been able to reduce our DSP vacancy rate by half and holding steady. We'll continue to do everything in our power to retain our incredibly talented workforce.
Thank you to our staff for their ongoing dedication in fulfilling our mission of connecting people, nurturing growth, and creating opportunities.
After much study and creative thinking, we set out to try something new by approaching our schedules differently. Scheduling staff in 12-hour shifts and offering reduced number of days worked per week.
Join us in celebrating DSP Recognition Week; September 11 - 17, 2022.

For years Exceptional Persons, Inc. has made it an absolute priority to advocate on behalf of our staff for better pay and professional opportunities, because what you do matters.
As a society we need to be critically invested in making sure organizations like EPI stay healthy for the people they support. We must continue to share their stories and tell our lawmakers they can no longer overlook people with disabilities and the critical services they rely upon.
Each year we take one week to celebrate and recognize our outstanding Direct Support Professionals (DSPs) and others like them throughout the world.
“Every DSP has a purpose, a calling to do something to make a difference in the world, but some of us go through times that redefine our lives and our abilities to go much further than we ever thought possible and come out on the other side stronger for it. I would do it all over again if needed.”
On Friday, June 19, we will be hosting a "Walk-In" Interview event virtually to help maintain the health of our community during the COVID-19 pandemic.
