The community room at St. Anthony’s in southwest Detroit teemed with well-wishers celebrating John Van Camp’s extraordinary leadership and legacy. John has been President and CEO of Southwest Solutions for the last 37 years.
He first joined the organization 45 years ago as an administrative assistant when it was a small community mental health agency. John’s vision and passionate commitment to service helped grow the organization into one of the largest and most effective nonprofits in metro Detroit.
John is retiring as the leader of Southwest Solutions at the end of this week, though he will continue to work with the organization in an advisory capacity. The open house on Monday evening (May 1) to mark John’s retirement was attended by community partners and members, board and staff, those we serve, and others.
