Joey D'Averso has been the President for the last several years leading us out of some troubling times.  With his strength of fundraising, finding support when needed and negotiating skills, the organization is stronger than ever.  In 2019, The Watertown/Oakville Chamber of Commerce honored Joe with the Unsung Hero award which he justly deserved.  Thank you to Joe for all his support and ambition

Jenny D'Averso is our Vice-President.  Jenny has been with us for years serving as a support group leader, a Family to Family educator and on the Board of Directors.  She pitches in at every turn.  She is a bit camera shy so no picture but she is great to have with us.  Thank you Jenny.
