Recognizing Direct Service Professionals


For individuals with disabilities, having high-quality support and financial resources are essential for community participation.

Both ABLEnow accounts and direct support professionals (DSPs) can be integral resources for increasing independence.

Recognition Week

ABLEnow celebrates Direct Support Professional (DSP) Recognition Week from September 10-16, 2023, to highlight the professional supports and services that DSPs provide to people with disabilities where they live and work.

These professionals provide amazing and often unsung work to help people with disabilities be part of their community. American Network of Community Options and Resources (ANCOR) and the National Alliance for Direct Support Professionals (NADSP) have more information recognizing the importance of this professional workforce.

Providers as ABLEnow Partners

Did you know that organizations and professionals that support individuals with disabilities can open and manage ABLEnow accounts for eligible clients?

Many DSPs assist clients with money management. ABLEnow is a solution that can eliminate the need to spend down funds to maintain eligibility for certain means-tested benefits such as Medicaid and Supplemental Security Income (SSI).

Opening and managing an ABLEnow account is another way professional caregivers can play a vital role in the lives of those they support. Get started today.
