BeCause & Effect #54: Phil Chiappetta

Children, Youth & Families

Phil Chiapetta has been with Rossbrook House for over 40 years. As their Executive Director, he knows what it takes to assist at-risk children and youth.

Beyond being a safe space for youth, Rossbrook offers alternative school programs, a young moms group, afterschool homework club, sports, music, and a healthy kitchen program that provides daily meals to participants while teaching them about healthy eating and cooking.

I sat down with Phil Chiappetta, Executive Director of Rossbrook House, to talk about his more than 40 years in the philanthropic sector, his recent appointment to The Winnipeg Foundation board, and his community mission to help youth find the right path to success.

This episode is also on The Winnipeg Foundation’s YouTube channel, so you can watch the video of my conversation with Phil.
