During Developmental Disabilities Awareness Month, Shangri-La is hosting three, free community screenings of "Invaluable: The Unrecognized Profession of Direct Support".
"Invaluable" 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.
A short discussion will follow the screening with Tiffani Olsen, Shangri-La's Director of Residential Services for Individuals with Intellectual or Developmental Disabilities.
Film is closed captioned. We ask that all participants remain on mute during the screening portion of the event.
