HSRI Cosponsoring Massachusetts Screenings of the Film Invaluable

Date: 10/2019

HSRI is pleased to be cosponsoring two free screenings of the documentary Invaluable: The Unrecognized Profession of Direct Support - in Arlington and Framingham, Massachusetts.

“We need a million new workers in the next 10 years to do direct support. Where are they going to come from and how are we going to keep them?”

Invaluable: The Unrecognized Profession of Direct Support is a documentary film exploring the underappreciated and underfunded work of direct support professionals (DSPs), the people who support individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities in living full lives as members of their communities. Through stories and interviews with DSPs, family members, advocates, and people with disabilities from across the country, the film honors the complexity of the work and the immense value it provides to individuals receiving support. And it asks us to take action now in strengthening the DSP workforce before the system collapses.

Learn more about the screenings and RSVP today, because capacity is limited in both venues.
