The George Hull Centre has a long history of helping children and families in dealing with the challenges of mental health issues and provides an environment of love, compassion and support. Growing up in Etobicoke and now as a father of three young children, I felt a connection wtih The George Hull Centre and wanted to get involved with a wonderful organization that provides hope and healing to families in need. I continue to be amazed with the team we have at The George Hull Centre - we could not provide the exceptional services to our community without our highly talented and dedicated team.

I have been very fortunate in my life to run my great family business in the community and have been looking for a way to volunteer and give back to the community.

Investing in children is one of the most prudent investments we can make in the future of our communities and our society. My grandther, George Hull, was passionate about community and facilitating the success of our youth. I intend to assist The George Hull Centre in continuing to help children and families in our community for generations to come. By creating We Are George, the Centre's Young Leaders Group, we are engaging the next generation of volunteers for the Centre and breaking down the stigma surrounding mental health.
Joining the George Hull Centre Board is an exciting opportunity for me. I have just recently retired from 20 years at the Heart and Stroke Foundation and am eager to be involved with a dynamic organization doing really important work. I was once a child welfare and community development worker in the Jane/Finch area and I saw both the tremendous needs of children and families and the difference an organization can make for both individuals and the community. I feel a connection to The George Hull Centre because my dear friend Libby Ridgely was once the Executive Director.

I wanted to become involved with The George Hull Centre because, as a lifelong resident of Etobicoke, I wanted to contribute to my community in an impactful way. I believe that youth mental health is a huge underserved area and one of our most critical needs, and that organizations like ours are critical to our communities.
I have always felt passionately about helping children and families. Joining The George Hull Centre Board allows me to pursue my passion while giving back to an organization that has also helped my family.

Having worked in health care for a number of years and having had the opportnity to work extensively with mental health programs and practitioners, I have seen the importance that mental health and wellness plays in creating an overall healthy society. This is especially apparent in the child and youth segment. I am excited to have the opportunity to serve The George Hull Centre, as the work done here is a key piece to the puzzle of child and youth wellness. As the father of a toddler in this community, it brings me great comfort to know that there is a resource like The George Hull Centre available, should we ever need its services.
