PCAs Can Register with “Direct Support Connect”

The Minnesota Department of Human Services is asking direct support workers to register with Direct Support Connect™,  a new statewide resource to connect people who use direct support services and those who provide the services. Direct Support Connect is a free resource to increase access and foster connections between support workers and people who use direct support.

The more support workers register with Direct Support Connect now, the more people who use their services will be able to connect with them this winter, when the site is launched to the public.

We invite support workers to register at Each worker’s profile will include his or her Unique Minnesota Provider Identifier (UMPI). When you register, please make sure your affiliated support workers are current so this information displays correctly.
