Meet our passionate and dedicated volunteer leaders

Our directors are community members who donate their time, resources, and expertise.

They are leaders who guide St. Joe’s Foundation now and into the future. It’s through their passion and hard work that we can ensure St. Joe’s continues to provide the best care possible. Most live in the west end or have history here and know first-hand the importance of having excellent care that’s close to home.

With their dedication and leadership, we celebrate these accomplishments:
