Direct Support Professional Workforce Crisis Community Meeting

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

Registration is recommended but not required; if you prefer not to register, please email WIND for the Zoom link for the sessions.

Listening sessions will be held via Zoom videoconferencing platform. Choose the time and day that best fits your schedule; you are always welcome to attend both sessions.
