Opportunity to recognize extraordinary Direct Support Professionals in Philadelphia
Have you ever experienced a Direct Support Professional engaged in superior work ethics? Or, have you ever thought about the level of detail a Direct Support Professional must consider to get their job done? Did they have the necessary resources to accomplish their tasks or did their level of creativity play a part in getting the job done? If you answered yes, then this is your opportunity to recognize that person in a Philadelphia city-wide celebration.
The Philadelphia Intellectual disAbility Services Public Awareness Committee will host its 17th Annual Points of Transformation Awards on Thursday, September 28, 2017. The committee is inviting the public to celebrate the accomplishments of those who have committed their careers to supporting people with an intellectual disAbility. The public is asked to help the committee to celebrate those deserving professionals and recognize their hard work by completing a nomination form describing why a particular Direct Supports Professional should be recognized.
The committee is dedicated to highlighting the accomplishments of those who exemplify their logo, "It's all about community!" and looks forward to nominations of role models and change agents. They are counting on the public to nominate professionals because their level of commitment and compassion should not go unnoticed.
All nominees will be recognized at the annual celebration. However, only one nominee will be selected for the award in each category. Nominations should include as much detail as possible to help the committee to choose honorees.
Nominations will closed on Friday, July 28, 2017 at 5:00pm.
