Dennis P. Ocampo

Program Director/ Livelihood

Dennis had the benefit of being exposed to both the corporate and the entrepreneurial world in the Philippines and in the United States. The former was as a credit analyst for a premier investment bank in the Philippines and as Director of Catering for a major U.S. hotel in the Washington, D.C. area. The latter is where he is presently involved as a Benefits Broker for more than 30 years.  In past years, he has been involved with his local parish church and the Catholic grade school of his children where he headed a committee (START) that developed alcohol, drug prevention/self-esteem building programs. These volunteer activities led him to become a board member of a local grassroots prevention non-profit organization (PANDAA) and, subsequently, also became the head of a committee of the Fairfax County Public Schools System that oversaw and developed the same prevention programs.

Since 1980’s, he has been volunteering with Feed the Hungry, Inc. He was invited to join the Board of Directors in 2012 and asked to head their Livelihood Program since then, and in his own words, “my work with Feed the Hungry is the best way to return/give back the blessings I have received in my life, to the country that bore and nurtured me.”
