Bob was co-founder (with Gretchen Wilbur), facilitator, and program designer of the Hard Times Cafe (HTC), an empowerment program for people in poverty that opened in 1991 when the State of Michigan cut General Assistance.  Bob facilitated the program for over eight years and trained hundreds of professionals in the model of empowerment upon which HTC was based.
