Meet our Executive Director
DW Bouchard, a native Mainer, has worked on the behalf
of vulnerable and at risk people for over twenty-five years.
His work has taken him to three different countries and
seven different states. He has run social service agencies
that have worked in large inner cities such as Philadelphia
and Camden, NJ as well as very rural areas such as Maine,
Vermont, and throughout Appalachia. These services have
included mental health, developmental disabilities, child
and family, homelessness, anti-poverty, and hunger.
DW gained his Masters of Social Work degree from
Rutgers University and is very happy to now be serving
the people and communities of the Northeast Kingdom.
