Can families directly hire a DSP or do they have to go through an agency?
Families can hire Direct Support Professionals (DSPs) directly if they or the family member who receives supports is receiving services that allow them to hire their own staff. Some examples of these types of services are: Self-Direction, Community Supports Services, Relief, or Respite. If a person receiving supports receives services through an organization, then that organization is responsible for hiring staff. Regardless of the type of service received, people receiving the services should always ask if they can be a part of the process for hiring staff.
