Requesting Your Assistance: Assessing the Impact of the Direct Support Workforce Crisis on DD Services


As you may have seen, recently we’ve been successfully pitching more coverage in the press about the direct support workforce crisis. We have also been successful in connecting members to reporters to discuss specific agency/corporation experiences. However, to keep this momentum going, we need more information.

For that reason, we want you to tell us: 

What does the direct support workforce crisis mean for your organization and the people you support? 


Are you turning away new referrals because of inadequate staffing? Are you shuttering existing programs or delaying the launch of new ones because you don’t have enough staff to make those programs successful? How else might this issue be hindering your ability to support people in community?

To answer this question, please take four minutes as soon as you’re able to complete this short questionnaire about the impact of the DSP workforce crisis on your organization. Any information you share will be kept confidential, and no identifying information will be preserved if and when we disseminate the results of this survey.

We are immensely grateful for the time you take to complete the survey. Thank you!
