Each year the American Network of Community Options and Resources (ANCOR), the national association representing providers of community-based services to people with disabilities, chooses a Direct Support Professional from each state to be recognized for their outstanding contributions to the people they serve.
Nominees are judged on their success in helping people with disabilities build social networks and engage in substantive community participation and for advocating for the people they serve.
The MENTOR Network is proud to announce that five of our DSPs were chosen as ANCOR’s 2021 Direct Support Professional of the Year:
- Deb Elam, REM Wisconsin
- Gladys McLeod, South Carolina MENTOR
- Mary Milton, REM Mississippi
- Patrice Russum, REM Nevada
- Tracy Longwell, REM West Virginia
We invite you to meet these outstanding winners and see how they’re making a difference each day for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities.
