Now is the time to nominate a Direct Support Professional and/or Home Provider from our Monadnock region to be considered for the 2020 DSP and Home Provider of the Year Awards.

These unsung heroes truly make a difference in so many lives, and we want to recognize their worthy contribution to the work of MDS. Everyone is welcome to submit a nomination form.

Our region’s winners (one DSP and one Home Provider) will be submitted for statewide consideration for NH DSP and Home Provider of the Year. This award is given annually by the NH Council on Developmental Disabilities. The DSP Conference is itself postponed until 2021, but there will be a virtual awards ceremony this fall.

Nominations for the Monadnock region are due at MDS by Monday, August 24, 2020. Nomination forms are available here (click to download).

You can send your nominations by mail to Priscilla Brisson, MDS, 121 Railroad St., Keene, NH, 03431 or by email to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
