Janet Color

Tell Us About Yourself:  I was born and raised in Sioux Falls, SD.  I am truly a “hometown girl” and have only lived in four houses my whole life, all of which are in Sioux Falls.  I met my husband when I was in high school and have now been married over 35 years.  We are very blessed with three wonderful children.  Our daughter and son-in-law live in CO and our son lives here in Sioux Falls.

What is your role at Helpline Center and how long have you worked there? I started in November 2015 and am the Event Coordinator with the Helpline Center. I am the direct contact for the Step Forward to Prevent Suicide walk and 5K run events in Brookings, Sioux Falls, Yankton, and Watertown as well as the Helpline Open, which is a golf event held in the summer.

What do you enjoy most about your work at Helpline Center? Working at the Helpline Center is one of the most rewarding careers I have ever had.  We make a difference in our community and lives of our neighbors every day.  Seeing the differences our programs make in our communities is the driving force and strength I get back from being part of such an incredible team.

Tell us the most interesting fact about yourself. I am also involved with The American Diabetes Association as a volunteer.

What kinds of hobbies and interests do you have outside of work?  I enjoy biking, reading, and shopping.  My ideal evening is just spending time with family and friends.

People would be surprised if they knew. As a child I was a champion archer winning several tournaments and competitions in my age group.  I also have a very strong passion for anything Disney.  (Movies, theme parks, merchandise, I love it all.)
