We asked several members of the Deer Lodge Centre Foundation Board of Directors why they support Deer Lodge Centre. These are their answers.


Making Lives Better: Doug Forbes 1

“Passion and dedication…”

Doug Forbes
Thompson Dorfman Sweatman LLP
(Vice Chair)

I was originally asked to join the Foundation board because a friend of mine, who was on the Board already, asked me for some help. I really didn’t know much about Deer Lodge then. However, I knew its reputation, and I wanted to help my friend, so I said yes. Once I joined the Foundation I was taken by the quality and diversity of the services and programs at Deer Lodge. I was also motivated by the passion and dedication of the staff and management of the centre and the Foundation. Soon I was no longer there just to help a friend out. I was there to support a facility that provides so much for our community and does so much for its patients.
