DSP Thank You Image 1
Dear Search Team,

This week is Direct Support Professionals Recognition week and I want to extend my deep thanks for your many contributions throughout the year.  As the frontline staff members at Search, you play the most important role in providing daily care, education, advocacy and support so that the individuals we serve can live with as much independence as possible.

Outstanding…remarkable….proud….fantastic….respect…grateful…happy...family.  These are just a few of the words that parents and guardians have used to describe your impact on their loved ones over the past year:

  • Search provides outstanding care and support for my sister.
  • I find Search to be remarkable in supporting my brother to do the most he is able to do.
  • I greatly respect the work and support given to my ward.  Much to be proud of.
  • You are doing a fantastic job with my brother.  I can see the difference in him.
  • I am happy my sister is treated with such respect.  Thank you for everything.
  • I am so grateful for the service you provide.
  • My son seems happy and content.
  • I love Search.  Great people – like family.
These expressions of gratitude, directly from the family members of the people we serve, are a reflection of your important work and effort throughout the year.  Thank you for all that you do for Search.  We are lucky to have you!

Gratefully,

Beth Valukas
Executive Director
