The Amazing Traits of Direct Support Professionals

Direct Support Professionals (DSP) deliver excellent care every day. Consumer Direct Care Network (CDCN) wants to bring awareness to their amazing work!

Sharing the Care is an ongoing effort to celebrate DSPs. Throughout the year, we introduce easy ways to recognize DSPs as the community heroes they are.

In August 2022, we kicked off Sharing the Care by asking the people we serve nationwide to submit DSP Amazing Traits. The outpour of submissions was phenomenal. Hundreds of people shared their gratitude for DSPs and the essential services they provide.

To showcase the submissions, we created the DSP Amazing Traits word cloud below. Thank you to everyone who contributed to this collaborative project.


CDCN is committed to recognizing DSPs and the vital work they do within their communities. Sharing the Care is one way we can show DSPs our appreciation for their work and gratitude for the care they bring to our world.
