Lindsay Sweetnam, MFTI - Community Programs Director, La Casa de las Madres

The mission of La Casa de las Madres is to respond to calls for help from domestic violence victims, of all ages, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.  We give survivors the tools to transform their lives.  We seek to prevent future violence by educating the community and by redefining public perceptions about domestic violence.

Lindsay joined La Casa in early 2010 as an advocate in both the Teen Program and Drop In Center before transitioning into the role of Case Manager at the Verona Hotel Supportive Housing Program.  Lindsay now coordinates and supervises La Casa’s shelter program and non-residential community service programs, which include the Drop In Center, Teen Program, Safe Housing Project, Ending Abuse in Later Life Project, Domestic Violence Response Team, and Outreach and Volunteer Program.  During her time at La Casa she has played an active role in implementing innovative and collaborative service delivery with the Office of the San Francisco District Attorney, the Treasurer’s Bank on San Francisco program, and Kaiser Permanente's Educational Theatre Programs.

Lindsay received a BA in Psychology and Spanish from the University of Oregon and an MA in Counseling Psychology from the University of San Francisco.  Other work and volunteer experience include work with homeless shelter and supportive housing residents, adults with severe and persistent mental illness in semi-independent living settings, adolescents in an inpatient psychiatric setting, and elementary youth in a school setting.  She is currently a Marriage and Family Therapist Intern working towards licensure.
