Fix the DSP Crisis A Film by PAR

“I love my job as a DSP. This is something that I love to do,” says Keya.

Direct Support Professionals (DSPs) support individuals with intellectual disabilities in their daily lives, from their health to their social lives. DSPs are hard-working and dedicated to the people they support, yet they often struggle to meet their own needs because Pennsylvania’s rates haven’t increased in 10 years and wages have flat-lined.

“I love my job as a DSP. This is something that I love to do,” says Keya.

Keystone Human Services has joined with PAR (Pennsylvania Advocacy and Resources for Autism and Intellectual Disability) and other PA human services organizations in advocating for a 2017-2018 Pennsylvania budget that invests in intellectual disability and autism services. The proposed PA budget bill, HB 218, includes increased funding for intellectual disability and autism services, which is critical to the people we serve and the people who support them.
