National Direct Support Professional Recognition Week is September 9-15, 2018! United Cerebral Palsy (UCP) of South Carolina joins organizations across the country in celebrating the Direct Support team members who enhance the lives of people with I/DD who look to them for support and care.
To those at UCP who hold these vital positions, you need to know how we value you and the work you do. We know how challenging, complex and rewarding your work can be. We know your work is demanding, with very high expectations related to your performance. You are the backbone of UCP, and we are enormously proud of you!
While we may not share our thanks and admiration often enough, please know you have it! We see the results of your work every day:
- When someone UCP supports smiles with joy,
- When they arrive at an activity with excitement,
- When they share a great story of something they enjoyed,
- When they accomplish a goal with great pride …
… these are all demonstrations of your commitment to them and to their success.
Often, the people we support accomplish big things, and there are also small things that happen every single day that are the rewards of your work. This is how we witness the value and effectiveness of your work, and the importance of your role.
Today, and every day, please know UCP of South Carolina appreciates your work and the commitment you demonstrate to those we support!
