WARSAW — Cardinal Services, located in Warsaw, IN, has launched a new campaign as they seek to hire more Direct Support Professionals (commonly referred to as DSPs). The driving force behind the campaign is the idea that DSPs “do good work” and get more than just a paycheck when they work for Cardinal Services.
Most people who live in the Kosciusko County area know about Cardinal Services, as they’ve been a part of the community for more than 60 years. They provide programs and services for individuals with disabilities and children and families facing challenges.
Working As A DSP
DSPs are the largest group of employees at Cardinal Services and are often considered to be the backbone of the entire organization. Cardinal Services’ main focus in this new campaign is to highlight what it’s like to be a DSP and why the job is about more than just a paycheck.
DSPs get paid to help people with challenges and disabilities live with dignity within our community. They aren’t just punching a time clock, they get to be an important part of someone’s life.
Working as a DSP at Cardinal Services means you get to help those who need it, while also earning a regular paycheck and benefits as a full-time employee.
DSPs are expected to help people with disabilities and challenges do things like:
- Learn how to be safe in their own homes;
- Discover new skills to learn; and
- Conquer daily life skills like shopping, budgeting, cleaning, spending time with friends, and cooking.
DSPs often say that the most rewarding part of their job is seeing the person they serve learn a new skill or get past a fear to be able to participate within our community. These Cardinal Services employees are an essential part of creating awareness and acceptance for people with challenges and disabilities.
“As a DSP you have the rare opportunity to get paid to make a difference. Each and every day our DSPs invest their time in others rather than spend time at work. Our employees Do Good Work.” – Randy Hall, CEO, Cardinal Services
