Direct Support Professionals: The Heartbeat of Monarch

As we celebrate National Direct Support Professionals Week at Monarch, Monarch directors of program operations have planned a variety of activities to recognize and thank our direct support staff.

Monarch also is a sponsor of The North Carolina Alliance of Direct Support Professionals celebration Sept. 11-12 at the Great Wolf Lodge in Concord, and a group of direct support staff will attend to represent the company. The event will honor direct support professionals from across the state for the amazing work they do and the tremendous support they provide to the people they serve.

“The work that direct support professionals do is occasionally physical, sometimes emotional and always rewarding,” Kelley said. “They give so much to the people we support, but we are all mindful that, as staff members, we also receive much in return.”
