"I’ve been working in this field for 30 years; 11 of those years have been here at IAHD. The key to working in this field is having compassion for the individuals we support and for yourself. This is not an easy job, but it is incredibly rewarding. I’m so appreciative of the recognition IAHD is giving to the Direct Support Professional role, to be recognized for the work we do every day for loved ones we support is so gratifying."
