July 2018 Happenings at Bear Creek Services


“Thank you.”  Two little words that can mean so much. 

The week of September 9th through 15th is Direct Support Professionals (DSP) week.  It is the week we have the opportunity to thank and celebrate those that work for us, that do the most important work of our agency.  They are the ones that make sure our programs function.  They are the ones that assure we meet our mission of providing personalized community life experiences.  Without our DSPs, we cannot function. 

Currently, because of the staffing crisis, many of our DSP's are working many hours of overtime.  They are picking up shifts, working late, and coming in early, all because they believe they make a difference in the lives of those we support.  It is my hope that you, our Bear Creek Services Community, also believe that they deserve all the thanks that they can get. 

For this reason, I would like to offer some suggestions about how you can get involved:

  • Send a personal thank you card to each DSP that supports the one you love here at Bear Creek Services.

  • Send a basket of goodies to all the staff at the program that means the most to you.

  • Stop by with a box of cookies or doughnuts and personally say, “thank you”.

Our Board of Directors and our Leadership Team will be taking the time to thank our DSP's throughout the week as well, but I believe the most impact will come from the rest of our community who takes the time to say, “THANKS”.
