Direct Support Professional Recognition Week #DSP

September 9, 2014

Dear Fellow Hoosiers:

This week is Direct Support Professionals Recognition Week. I would like to recognize and 
thank all of the Direct Support Professionals who support individuals with intellectual and 
developmental disabilities throughout the State of Indiana. These Hoosiers have a heart for 
service and come alongside those with disabilities in our communities every day. Thanks to 
their dedication and commitment, people with disabilities in Indiana receive the support and 
services they so deserve.

As many of you know and appreciate, Direct Support Professionals play several roles in 
supporting the individuals served by the Division of Disability and Rehabilitative Services. 
Direct Support Professionals are mentors, confidantes, teachers, motivators, facilitators, and 
advocates who empower individuals with disabilities to live successfully in the communities 
they choose. 

So this week and every week, we thank all of the Direct Support Professionals who do so 
much to improve the lives of our fellow Hoosiers living with intellectual and developmental 


Michael R. Pence
Governor of Indiana
