WHAT CLIENTS HAVE SAID ABOUT THERESA DOBKO
“I first worked with Theresa while I was Board President of Jessie’s Centre, now Jessie’s: The June Callwood Centre for Young Women. Theresa was our consultant for fundraising and communications for three pivotal years. During that time, she worked with our board and the late June Callwood to rededicate our Centre to June and spearheaded the walk through Toronto for June’s memorial. She increased our non-governmental revenue from less than $100,000 a year to $500,000. She redesigned our annual reports, brochures and our website but always in a way that reflected the teens and children we serve. I later recommended her for work at Pleiades Theatre and hired her myself to help market a book I had written. It’s always a pleasure working with her.” — Pamela Earle, 2012, former President, Jessie’s: The June Callwood Centre for Young Women
“From Casey House, to Kumbaya, to Justice for Children and now Jessie’s Centre, it is a treat to work with you. I respect your formidable intelligence.
