Direct Support Professionals are Dedicated and Compassionate Workers

By: Dennis Haas, President/CEO
Date: September 7, 2016
Direct support professionals play an important role in providing support to thousands of people in our community with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD). These dedicated and compassionate workers assist with a broad range of activities and they help ensure that individuals with IDD can be active participants in their communities. The job can be physically and emotionally draining. But the rewards while not necessarily monetary, are great--the ability to work directly with others who, in large measure because of you-- have a shot at a meaningful life.

The Importance of Running an ABA Classroom

When I was a young child, I wanted to be a teacher, but I also wanted to earn enough money to be “Middle to Upper Class.” So teaching was not my first career choice. Since my mother was a bookkeeper, I chose Accounting and Finance as my road to wealth. However; I was soon to discover that when you go against your true calling, you will be unhappy. Back to school I went for my degree in the field of Education, where I stayed for 16 years. I taught elementary, middle and high school students and found my passion was helping socially and physically disadvantaged high school students realize their dreams.

Date: May 31, 2016
Prior to the start of this career transition, I was fortunate to see ARC Broward IT Asset Recovery’s (ITAR) impressive 25,000-foot warehouse and meet the dedicated staff. It’s more than just an electronics recycling facility. ARC Broward IT Asset Recovery collaborates with larger businesses that have 100 or more users. When a company is ready to upgrade, liquidate or consolidate its technology, the certified ITAR team evaluates the assets and takes detailed inventory on every piece of equipment, large or small. Then, there are rigorous checks in place to ensure that all storage media processed is properly cleared, and if necessary destroyed using advanced shredding equipment.
