We invite you to join us for this fun, family-friendly event held in honor of our incredible team of Direct Support Professionals!

Event Overview

Each year in September, we gather to celebrate our Direct Support Professionals during National Direct Support Professionals Recognition Week!

This year’s event will honor their incredible work, done in the midst of the pandemic, and is our way of giving back for everything they have given to the individuals we support. It will also mark the day when we officially become Open Door and we’d like to personally invite you to help us celebrate both at the Open Door Fun Fest!
