Bob Glowacki is passionate about providing accurate information and access to services for people with disabilities. “Being part of an agency that serves individuals with disabilities from about five months to 92 years, I see how the right supports, therapies and involvement at an early age can have profoundly positive effects that can impact a person for a lifetime,” he says.
Leadership and service are two words easily associated with Glowacki. He has served the community as an alderman, and as a member in a variety of local service clubs and community organizations. He says he developed the vision for and skills at uniting service-oriented organizations when he was part of a large undertaking that merged six local parish schools.
After heading the psychological services department for a large local rehabilitation center and managing the supportive living services for Catholic Charities, Glowacki became the Values Based Education Center manager for Kindcare, providing training for human services professionals serving adults with disabilities, and directing a self-advocacy program for adults with disabilities. Two years later, he was named Executive Director.
When Easter Seals and Kindcare decided to merge, it was Glowacki’s experience and leadership that made him the perfect candidate to lead. Easter Seals Southeast Wisconsin is committed to expanding treatment services and programs that meet the needs of families living with autism. It is a natural extension of Easter Seals’ mission to provide services so that all children and adults with disabilities have equal opportunities to live, learn, work and play in their communities.
Glowacki earned his master’s degree in clinical psychology from Marquette University.
