Treasurer Robert Hatfield has been an integral part of the development of The Other Side of the Fence. Although Robert is great with his hands, and can build or fix just about anything, he is even better with children. When Robert is not trying to prepare a budget he is trying to obtain his degree in psychology so he can further help the children in his community. Robert has not only been exceptional at helping set up fundraisers, but has lent a major hand in helping care for, train, and re-home over 400 dogs.
General Contractor and Dive Master Rob Walkenhauer is the newest addition to our team. His dedication at helping children has been apparent in his 6 years of working with the court and community students. When Community Schools have the budget, Rob is also the automotive restoration teacher for the Blue Ox School which helps at-risk teenagers. We are in the process of raising funds for Rob to obtain his General Contractor License from the state through The Other Side of the Fence. Once he is fully licensed with our nonprofit, he will be overseeing all major projects under the Revitalize Humboldt program. In the future Rob hopes to create a program that helps at-risk youth achieve their high school diplomas and gain skills that will prepare them for the workforce in a positive environment that is disconnected from everyday influences that negatively affect their ability to succeed.
