On May 14, 2020, providers of lifesaving services to individuals with intellectual disability or autism (ID/A) joined families and Direct Support Professionals to urge lawmakers and Governor Tom Wolf to provide emergency funding to cover skyrocketing costs due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Lakeshore's own DSP Gina was a featured speaker. Gina beautifully articulated the incredible and vital role the DSP plays in serving the ID population when she said "the invisible" professional.
Gina and her other DSP's here at Lakeshore have remained consistent and committed to providing the highest level of care during the Covid crisis. They cannot be forgotten and the services they provide are critical to the consumers and families we serve. Please watch.
