June was a unique month at CRSI. We're awarding 10 Attitude of Gratitude winners who went above and beyond to help cover hours during COVID-related staffing issues. Below is a quote from Program Specialist Michael Smith who nominated the 10 winners:
“All the staff included in June’s Attitude of Gratitude embody the best traits CRSI values in direct support caregivers. Their diligent execution of our Agency’s core values and mission statement are a constant inspiration to their peers, supervisors, and those they serve. I am pleased to recognize these dedicated staff members for continuing to prioritize the well-being of our individuals when an individual at their work location contracted COVID-19.”

Hi everyone, I am Scott Delong, the President of CRSI, and I just wanted to take a moment to express my gratitude.
First and foremost, thank you to our outstanding team members. The CRSI team is continuing to work hard on the front lines, helping those we serve adapt to all the changes that have recently taken place and helping protect them during this pandemic.
Team, you are the heart and soul of what we do. Your hard work and dedication means the world to the people you care for and to their families.
I would also like to express our gratitude for the generous support and donations throughout our communities for items we so desperately need. From masks to hand sanitizer and wipes, everything we need to stay safe, we can't thank you enough!
Also, to the Boards of Developmental Disabilities in the counties we serve, we cannot thank you enough for continuing to spread great information and resources to our teams.
We are all in this together and we are proud to be a part of so many amazing communities!
CRSI is working diligently to ensure that both the individuals we serve and our team are taken care of through these challenging times.
During this pandemic, we are in dire need of a few items for some of our most vulnerable.
If you or someone you know has the desire to assist through employment or by sharing items you might have in excess, we would be very grateful. Please Contact Us or call 937-653-1320, pressing 0.
If you are unable to help with any of those needs, please know that we are very appreciative of your thoughts, prayers and support as well. Please help us spread the word by sharing our message.
Direct support professionals, or DSPs, are integral to supporting people with developmental disabilities, especially to keep people healthy and safe. Here are things DSPs can do to prepare for and prevent coronavirus (COVID-19).

The federal government would track the number of direct support professionals for the first time ever under a new proposal designed to help address a shortage of workers to assist people with disabilities.
A bipartisan bill introduced in the U.S. Senate and House of Representatives on Monday would change the way that the government categorizes direct support professionals.
Currently, these workers are lumped in with home health care aides in the system used by the Bureau of Labor Statistics to monitor workforce trends. Advocates say that category is far too broad and leads to a lack of reliable information about how many people across the nation are employed as direct support professionals and where more are needed.
