CHEEERS Staff Share Their Talent

Jimmy Prado, has worked at CHEEERS the past four years and is currently our Facility Manager, responsible to oversee daily operations to include food service,
maintenance, housekeeping as well as fleet management of our vehicles (to list  just a  few of his responsibilities). He is one busy guy, but he still manages to share his passion and talent with our program participants.  Jimmy recently hosted and taught the Hammer and Heart Workshop at CHEEERS.  This workshop took place in two different sessions for a total of 10 hours. Jimmy, who is also a Certified Peer Support Specialist with 5 years in Recovery, assisted and taught our program participants the art of fabricating metal into fine jewelry.  You see...Jimmy also has a degree in Fine Arts from Montana State University , with an emphasis on metal fabricating. He enjoys working with silver and gold to make beautiful jewelry in his "free time" ,  but  he also maintains a business license as a Jeweler in Arizona.  As you can see our participants took advantage of this opportunity and Jimmy's generosity in sharing his talent. Thank you Jimmy ! Beautiful work!
