Adelante is grateful to have lots of long-term staff members who value our mission and the people we support. One of our 30-year employees, Jim Bullard, retired in January and we celebrated with a Star Wars themed party. Jim began his career as a service coordinator, but held many positions over the years thanks to his interest in technology and construction, leading building renovations and including the development of CaseLink, Adelante’s client management software. Jim was a champion of project management, IT, and facilities. Therefore, Adelante set up a training fund to celebrate his career in an effort to provide these types of educational opportunities for our team members. The first applications will be taken later this spring, to be used in summer or fall of 2018. It will be a great way to support the professional development of our valued staff members as well as remember one of our great long-term employees.
