Our direct support professionals really rock.

They rock so much that Leslie Greensides, staff accountant at ADEC, wrote a song about them.

Musicians from ADEC’s administrative team visit locations throughout Elkhart and St. Joseph locations in December to spread Christmas cheer with carols. Leslie, a regular participant in the choir, chose to write a new song for this year’s tour.

The song is written to the tune of “Jingle Bells” and describes just how vital of a role our direct support professionals play in the lives of the people they serve. The members of #teamADEC spend their weeks providing choice and possibility for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities.

Working day and night
To guide our clients’ way
Doing what is right, every single day
Walking side by side with our clients as they go
Possibility, choice and pride is what
All of them shall know

DSPs, DSPs, you guys really rock
Cooking, cleaning and transporting
All around the clock
DSPs, DSPs, you brighten every day
Thank you for all you do
Enjoy your Christmas Day
