Direct Support Professionals (DSPs) are the Heart of Bancroft
The 2,000 DSPs who work at Bancroft are a diverse group of talented, compassionate men and women who devote their lives to empowering people with disabilities to live their best lives. We couldn’t do what we do without them.
What is a DSP?
DSPs are caregivers who work with people with physical, intellectual and developmental disabilities, helping them with daily activities and supporting them in integrating into the community and achieving greater levels of independence. They work side-by-side with those in their care to lend a hand in whatever life throws their way.
Show Your Love for DSPs
DSPs work tirelessly and compassionately to support the individuals in our care and empower them to realize their best lives. It’s a rewarding but challenging career path, and that’s why we want to make sure every DSP and front-line staff member knows how valued, appreciated and vital they are to Bancroft’s mission.
