Having co-founded Home on the Hill Supportive Housing Inc. ten years ago, Kathy Mochnacki is stepping down as President. She hands the reins to Maggie Veltheer who has worked shoulder to- shoulder with her. 
 

As President, Kathy worked tirelessly, consistently engaging the community and all levels of government about the plight of families who are left to support their ill relative in an environment where services are inadequate. She developed the Robert Veltheer Lecture Series on Mental Illness, attracting well respected speakers who gave informative lectures to improve mental illness literacy and increase understanding. 
 

During her tenure, Home on the Hill was able to secure stable housing for severely mentally ill clients in the community, giving them the opportunity to live their life with dignity and purpose. 
Kathy has lobbied incessantly for changes to mental health laws, leaving no stone unturned in her quest for adequate support for people with serious mental illness, as well as their caregivers. 

 

In December 2021 Kathy was awarded the Outstanding Canadian Award and Letter of Recognition for her community work for people and their families affected by serious mental illness. 
 

Please join us in celebration of Kathy’s accomplishments. No longer President, Kathy continues to be a Director of the Board for Home on the Hill and will act as Community Liaison. 
 

We wish Kathy the very best in her future endeavors.
