Peter Doliber has spent most of his professional life in nonprofit community work. While working as Director of Community Benefits at Memorial University Medical Center, he founded the Patient Navigator Program, Center for Specialty Care, and the Community Care Center (now Community Health Mission). He was instrumental in the development of the Savannah Area Behavioral Health Collaborative, Chatham County Safety Net Planning Council, and managed the Indigent Care Trust Fund.

Mr. Doliber has been integral in the development of a number of community-based endeavors, including the Chatham-Savannah Authority for the Homeless, the JC Lewis Primary Health Care Center, Georgia Free Clinic Network, Healthy Savannah, and Step Up Savannah Poverty Reduction Initiative.

Mr. Doliber is originally from Boston, Mass. He is married to Jean and they have one daughter, Ashley. They moved to Savannah in 1986, and have called Savannah home ever since.

Mr. Doliber is currently the Executive Director of the West Broad Street YMCA, one of six Heritage Y's remaining in the country. Founded in 1947 to serve black soldiers denied services at the legally segregated USO/YMCA, it has been serving downtown Savannah for over 60 years. Located on four acres of ground off MLK, just west of downtown between Kayton and Frazier Homes, it serves area residents with a median income of $8,200. There are more than 600 children under the age of 18 in the neighborhood. It is the mission of WBSY to provide pathways for these families to end generational poverty.
