Statewide Recruitment Effort Launched

DSPThe Ohio Provider Resource Association is launching DSPOhio in direct response to Ohio's developmental disability system's number one challenge-the direct support workforce crisis. To effectively recruit DSPs on an ongoing basis a process is required to increase awareness of and familiarity with the important and rewarding role of providing direct supports to individuals with developmental disabilities. DSPOhio is singularly purposed to find and attract individuals across Ohio who may wish to be a DSP and help them immediately connect to an employing provider of their choice.

DSPOhio is a unique, statewide DSP (Direct Support Professional) recruitment effort that combines targeted multi-media advertising to brand the term DSP with an on-line DSPOhio job-site that connects potential employees with developmental disability providers.
