Please join me in honoring the true unsung heroes at Seven Hills - our fellow staff members who work in Direct Support roles, assisting individuals with disabilities and life challenges in their quest to lead dignified and self-determined lives. The week of September 13-19 has been designated as "National Direct Support Professional Recognition Week," an important movement aimed at recognizing - and, most important - thanking people who have chosen to support and care for others as their life's profession.
