Join the Coalition for a Direct Support Professional Living Wage Today!
Direst Support Professionals (DSPs) make it possible for many individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities to lead lives in their communities. They provide personal care, social support, and physical assistance individuals in a wide range of activities when needed. They work in a variety of settings including individual and family homes, group homes, supported apartments, schools, workplaces, recreational and fitness settings, etc. Currently, the need for DSPs exceeds the number of such professionals working in the field, and this workforce shortage is only expected to increase. New Jersey must address the workforce issues to ensure services will continue for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities who depend on it.
