One more agency that I became more familiar with in the Great State of the 10,o00 lakes was an agency led by Jay Freshour and his team at Genesis Group Homes.  Jay has assembled a tremendously talented team and is located on the West side of Minneapolis.  From left to right in this picture below, Jay recently hired Lee to assist with some administration and human resource elements and together I expect some tremendous things.

One thing that struck me about Genesis is that each home that now houses clients in the surrounding Minneapolis area was at one time the home of Jay and his family.  Jay has a great family that I and Kris Kepler had the priviledge of eating dinner with on Thursday night while in Minnesota.  Kris and I trained the staff at Genesis and they look to move completely paperless in the next 2 years as they fully implement Therap.  Jay and his agency is one of several new agencies starting or considering Therap in the greater Minneapolis area.  We are building a great group in that area that I know we will be able to collaborate with in making all of these strong agencies even stronger and more effecient.
