Monarch named 2014 Moving Mountains Best Practices Award recipient

The National Alliance for Direct Support Professionals (NADSP), an organization working to enhance the status of direct support professionals, has named Monarch its 2014 Moving Mountains Best Practices Award recipient.

This national award recognizes organizations, like Monarch, that use best practices in direct support staff workforce development, which results in improved outcomes for the people with disabilities who are supported.

Monarch was selected from among numerous award candidates for its Helping Dreams Take Flight initiative, which includes a partnership of agencies joined to create a training and certification program for direct support professionals to enhance their skills and increase the quality of care provided to the people they support. 

“We are elated to be recognized in such a meaningful way by a well-respected national organization that aims to enhance the work and position of direct support staff,” said Monarch CEO Dr. Peggy Terhune. “We are proud of the professional development initiatives we have implemented to better support the work of staff. The outcomes have not only been beneficial to those professionals, but have helped to vastly improve the quality of life of the people we support who are directly impacted by these valuable staff members.”

This year's Moving Mountain Best Practices Award winners will be honored during the 2014 Reinventing Quality Conference in Baltimore, Md. Aug. 3-5. Dr. Terhune will accept the award on behalf of the agency.
