Timothy P. Wintermute is the executive director of the Luella Hannan Memorial Foundation, an endowed operating foundation that has been working to enhance the quality of lives for senior citizens in Metropolitan Detroit, Michigan, since 1925.
Mr. Wintermute has worked in the field of aging on the national and local levels beginning in 1971, when he worked with low income seniors as a community advocate and organizer in New York City, where, among other accomplishments, he organized older tenants in single room occupancy hotels and helped convert a hotel in Times Square into the city's first supportive housing.
In 1978 he became the associate director and then director of a Washington, DC-based national nonprofit organization that developed and managed affordable senior housing. From 1983 until assuming his position at Hannan in 1993, he was a consultant to national and locally based organizations involved in the development and management of housing and programs for seniors.
He is a member of many national and local organizations and is the current chair of Michigan Grantmakers in Aging, an affinity group of the Council of Michigan Foundations and Grantmakers in Aging.
Mr. Wintermute has a B.A. in philosophy from Macalester College in St. Paul, Minnesota, and has completed three years of graduate studies at Union Theological Seminary in New York City.
