REM New Jersey DSP Chosen as DSP of the Day by The MENTOR Network


At New Jersey MENTOR and The MENTOR Network, we value our Direct Support Professionals and others in direct support roles for their dedication to those we serve and their critical role in carrying out our mission every day.

Throughout the month of September, The MENTOR Network is honoring direct support staff members through the DSP of the Day campaign, which recognizes a different direct support staff member each day for their outstanding service.

Emelys Contreras, a DSP from REM New Jersey, was chosen as the DSP of the Day for September 3.

“What I enjoy most about working in a direct support role is the feeling you get after seeing an individual happy and being able to help them be more independent. I love seeing them smile and be proud of themselves,” said Emelys.

Congratulations, Emelys, and thank you for your commitment to the individuals we serve!
