MDI recognizes National Direct Support Professional Week September 9th – 15th. Staff members are crucial to supporting people with disabilities in the community.

To recognize the accomplishments and contributions made by direct support professionals to the lives of people with disabilities, MDI in the communities of Cohasset, Grand Rapids, Hibbing and Minneapolis, along with the Minnesota Organization for Habilitation and Rehabilitation (MOHR) are supporting Direct Support Professional (DSP) Week.

“Direct support professionals are at the core of our mission, helping people with disabilities to live the lives that they choose,” said MOHR President Julie Johnson. “Their work is valued, needed and appreciated.”

MDI’s mission is to serve people with disabilities by offering meaningful employment opportunities and services. Our employees with disabilities, as well as our placement participants are well supported by wonderful, supportive direct support professionals.

With more than 100 disability service providers across the state, MOHR’s mission is to promote and strengthen employment and life engagement opportunities as chosen by persons with disabilities.
