Do you know a Direct Support Professional who goes above and beyond in providing services to the people he or she supports? Is there a Home Provider you know who embodies the mission of MDS? Deadline for DSP and Home Provider of the Year nominations has been extended to this Thursday, August 29th.

Now is the time to nominate a Direct Support Professional and/or Home Provider from our Monadnock region for consideration for the 2013 DSP/Home Provider of the Year Awards, given annually by the NH Council on Developmental Disabilities. Each region will submit two nominations – one for DSP of the Year, one for Home Provider of the Year – to the DD Council in late August. The 22 nominees will be recognized on the State House lawn on Yellow Flag Day in mid-September. The statewide honoree will be selected from these nominees and will be announced in late October at the annual DSP Conference at the Attitash Grand Summit Resort in Bartlett, N.H.
