As a young boy, David experienced difficulties at home and in the community. His involvement with Vanier, including the residential treatment program, focused on working through family and personal issues.
David credits Vanier with 'opening his eyes' and helping him to
'put things into perspective.' David did the hard work and faced
his challenges with personal courage.
As a successful adult, David decided that he wanted to give back to Vanier and returned as a volunteer. The combination of his own childhood experiences with his personal warmth and generosity has resulted in a volunteer who is truly an exemplary role model for children currently struggling with adversity.
In 2001, David received the Vanier Excellence in Volunteering award for his ongoing commitment to making a difference in the lives of children.
David, we are very proud of your accomplishments.
