“Providing adults with with intellectual and other disabilities an opportunity to experience life to its fullest is rewarding and life-changing work,” says CEO John Estrem. “We are honored and humbled as an organization to know that our staff members feel a deep sense of purpose and direction in what they do, and it is with their support that we have become a top workplace.”

“I started my career as a Direct Support Professional, but I wanted more. My goal was to go to college to become a nurse, so I applied for the education grant to help pay for my education. I finished my schooling, obtained my nursing degree, and was hired as Registered Nurse. Now, with my nursing degree, I can continue to help the people I support live a full life. I just love my job!”
