We know that this is hard work, and we believe that these professionals deserve to be paid fairly. Share if you agree! ... See MoreSee Less

Direct Support Professionals (DSPs) provide critical services to some of New York's most vulnerable populations, yet many of them are forced to work second jobs in order to provide for their own families.

Please join the #bFair2DirectCare Coalition in showing appreciation for these inspiring individuals during DSP Recognition Week by telling your NYS Senators & Assembly Members to give DSPs a raise in the next budget!

The support our Direct Support Professionals provide to Self Advocates/Family Members with developmental disabilities, 24 hours a day, seven days a week, is critical.

If you agree that they deserve to earn a living wage for all of their hard work, join the fight for an increase in state funding so we can adequately increase salaries. Without this increase, we will be unable to retain our workforce or fill vacancies.
