The MENTOR Network

Mary Milton Winner, Mississippi DSP of the Year
Program Supervisor, REM Mississippi

Mary Milton is a DSP with REM Mississippi, a part of The MENTOR Network. When COVID-19 made it impossible to participate in community activities, Mary figured out strategies and activities that allowed individuals to participate from within the home and meet their goals. Prior to the pandemic, Mary and the individuals in the home would enjoy a weekly dinner at a local restaurant. When this option became unavailable, Mary turned the kitchen into a restaurant and created an atmosphere where everyone could still have their special weekly dinner. Mary is passionate about her work and fulfills her responsibilities with integrity and compassion for everyone she supports.
