Robert “Bob” Veltheer

It is with tremendous sadness, that Home on the Hill Supportive Housing announces the passing of our Founding President, Robert Veltheer, who died on February 7, 2016.

Bob will be terribly missed not only within the Home on the Hill Community but also at St. Mary’s Anglican Church where he was past Chair of the Social Outreach Committee. He will be also missed in the surrounding Richmond Hill area.

Our thoughts are with his family at this difficult time.

Bob led Home on the Hill through its creation and growth over the past five years. His steady guidance throughout the development of this charitable organization was instrumental to its success. While fighting for housing, the agency has developed a successful lecture series and family support and self- care group.

Just last week, Bob and other members of Home on the Hill met with a representative of York Region Housing to discuss the acquisition of units at the Community Hub at Crosby and Yonge in Richmond Hill. The first signs of success towards the goal of developing supportive housing were achieved just before his passing.

Home on the Hill Supportive Housing is a lasting legacy to Bob’s passion for a family inclusive, humane and effective social service and housing system.
