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.

Jeremy Bondurant

Direct Support Professional
NeuroRestorative Kentucky

“I enjoy getting to know each person we serve and coming up with different activities for them to participate in.  When I take them out into the community—whether it be shopping or to a local park—and they are able to get what they need and do what they want it makes me feel like I have helped them.  I especially like doing special activities with them that they might not have been able to do otherwise. I really enjoy any activity that they enjoy. It makes me happy to see them happy.”

Direct Support Professional

“What I enjoy most about working in a direct support role is seeing all the different faces at the center and putting a smile on them. I like reaching out to people, doing activities with them, and giving back to the community.”

Jennifer Mitchell

Direct Support Professional
NeuroRestorative, Ohio

“I enjoy making a difference in a person’s life.  I enjoy seeing a person come into NeuroRestorative and leave with a positive attitude knowing that we cared and rehab worked.  My favorite community outing recently was to Hartville Marketplace.  I liked having the opportunity to help individuals think and make decisions while doing a scavenger hunt through the store.”
