We have had some truly exceptional individuals on staff over the past decade. Our team has been full of ingenuity, creativity, and a willingness to experiment at the grassroots level. Below is a bit of bio on our current staff team, as well as a history of some or our amazing former staff and where they are now.
Bob is the Executive Director of the DWCC. He’s the visionary leader and the founder, a man full of ideas and enthusiasm. He has been the entrepreneurial mind behind so many of the DWCC’s grassroots initiatives. Bob loves to experiment and to learn. He’s currently pursuing a doctorate degree.
Bob is a husband, a father of four, and someone who welcomes his neighbours into his home without hesitation. Kids from the neighbourhood gravitate to his yard where they jump on his trampoline or play badminton on his front lawn.

Hughie is our Peer Support Worker, living and working out of the social housing complex at Glengarry and University. He oversees a drop-in centre at 333 Glengarry called the Glengarry Community Lighthouse. He leads with compassion and empathy, catalyzing neighbours to love the place they call home. As someone who comes from poverty and addiction, he has earned the trust of his neighbours because they know he has been through it as well.
Hughie is also a musician and guitar teacher. He’s also recently leaned into the power of his own personal story of overcoming the odds. He has spoken at various St. Clair College and University of Windsor classrooms, telling his story of trauma, adversity, and what made the difference in his life.
