Via Celebrates Direct Support Professional Recognition Week
This month Via celebrated National Direct Support Professional Recognition Week, which honors dedicated, innovative Direct Support Professionals (DSPs) who are the heart and soul of the agency. This year’s theme was our “DSPs are Rock Stars.” Each DSP received special gifts and participated in raffles with amazing prizes. Via inducted long-time Via DSPs into its honorary Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Click here to see the Via Leadership Team video thanking DSPs and inducting Hall of Fame members.

Via participants and their families sent in glowing comments about why their DSP is a Rock Star. There were so many glowing comments that were shared on Via’s social media pages and with DSPs. Here are a few of them:
We want to thank the following for providing raffle prizes for this celebration: Vicki Doulé, Sharon Geroulo and BB&T, now Truist, Vickie Nisbet, Via Leadership Team, Zulily, Nakia Flowers and Air Products, Lisa Somers, Chipotle, Wind Creek Casino, The Melting Pot and Giant Food Stores.
