DSP RESOURCE SUPPORT

As Direct Support Professionals (DSPs), providers are the backbone of the developmental disabilities system. We believe in win-win relationships with our provider partners to cultivate a strong, diverse network that offers support and opportunities to the people we both serve.

Through our Provider Relations team, our goal is to provide support and guidance for certified Miami County DSPs to find their own keys to success. Our Provider Relations Resource Support Coordinator is available to help DSPs and their families find services and supports through short-term emergencies, as well as work, personal or family challenges.
