The support Job One receives from our community truly makes our work possible. Job One donors help provide vital resources that enable us to positively impact the lives of the individuals with disabilities that we serve. This month, we visited with Sherrie Balmer from Paric Construction. The team at Paric Construction have not only been great as a vendor, but they have been generous donors and supporters of the Job One mission. We are thankful for great partners like Paric! Read on for our Q&A with Sherrie Balmer.

Nate Brewer was there when the Governor visited, I was meeting with Deloris one day and she and I spent time in the lunchroom talking to employees. It was so wonderful to hear their stories and get to know them. I know Christine and Greg relayed to me how much they enjoyed one of the breakfast events. Hilary has interacted with several employees on visits. We all could give you many great memories. We are proud to be a partner with Job One and look forward to enhancing our partnership.
