The MENTOR Network

DSP of the Week

At The MENTOR Network, we believe that our Direct Support Professionals—who help carry out The Network’s mission every day—should be valued, supported and recognized for a job well done. That’s why we’re honoring our direct support workforce and the tremendous difference they make each day in the lives of thousands of individuals we serve.

Each week, we’re recognizing one of our remarkable DSPs. Please take a moment to meet these talented individuals and remember to thank them for their commitment to the individuals we serve.

Direct Support Professional
REM North Dakota

“The thing I most enjoy about my job is seeing the happiness in the individuals I serve and knowing I am an important part of their lives. Seeing them succeed is very fulfilling. I work in the Day Program so the individuals I serve are in the community every day. I love assisting them with what they need at their job and volunteer sites. We also do a lot of fun things like go to the state fair and potluck picnics! There is no job I’d rather have and I am very grateful to have the job I do!”

Aleia Dye

Direct Support Professional
REM Mississippi

“I really enjoy taking the individuals I have the pleasure of assisting to the Oxford Humane Society to walk the dogs. I also enjoy getting them involved in the local bowling league. They absolutely love it, and they get to socialize with others in the community who they’ve been in different workshops with and haven’t seen in a while.”
