With National Direct Support Professionals (DSP) Recognition Week coming up on September 11-17, Arc Broward is doing its part to honor frontline workers who support people with disabilities and other life challenges.
Arc Broward, a nonprofit organization that provides services for adults and children with intellectual and developmental disabilities, is hosting a number of appreciation events throughout the week. The festivities include two special luncheons, a “Wellness Day” provided by Baptist Health and Walgreens, breakfast and dinner delivered to community living residences and an ice cream social. Also, Arc Broward’s main Sunrise campus lobby will be filled with hundred of cards of appreciation for DSPs from parents, relatives, volunteers and Arc Broward staff. Throughout the week, Arc Broward will recognize a “DSP of the Day” each day on its social media sites.
