WIND Direct Support Professional Workforce Crisis Page - http://www.uwyo.edu/wind/dsp-forum.html

Please join WIND for a community meeting to get strategies and share successful approaches for the recruitment and retention of direct service providers in Wyoming.

The current difficulties in recruiting and retaining support professionals risk the ability to meet the service needs of individuals on the developmental disability waivers.

Bring your success stories, strategies, and ideas for addressing this crisis.

We invite:

  • Waiver clients

  • Direct support professionals

  • Case managers

  • Family members

  • Advocates

  • Policy makers and elected officials

  • Interested community members

  • State agency administrators

Sessions were held October 19 and 20th. Additional information will be shared here soon. For more information, please contact the WIND main office at uwwind@uwyo.edu or by calling 307-766-2761
