Hands of Hope would like to introduce our new Executive Director, John van Leeuwen, and welcome him and his family back to their home city of Winnipeg. John has spent much of his life working in the not for profit sector and brings with him a passion for investing in the lives of people he comes in contact with. Much of his experience comes from working in summer camps in both Manitoba and Saskatchewan, first in site management roles and then in promotion and fundraising. Following his time in camping ministry, John spent 3 years working with Habitat for Humanity in Prince Albert, Saskatchewan initially as the ReStore Manager, then as Interim Executive Director.
John and his family look forward to re-establishing their lives here in Winnipeg and working with Hands of Hope, helping to improve the lives of people in need .
