BHCHP is deeply saddened at the tragic loss of Christine Loeber, who lost her life last week during a hostage crisis in California.
Christine was the Executive Director of The Pathway Home that treats veterans suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder. She was a bright light in our BHCHP development and research departments from 2002 – 2007, and with Dr. O’Connell and others, helped edit the widely used manual The Health Care of Homeless Persons.
Christine embraced our mission fervently and she went on to pursue a Master’s degree in Social Work at Boston College while continuing to work part-time with us. She had a resolute commitment to care for women and veterans, particularly with PTSD, and she became quite skilled.
We grieve the loss of this remarkable person, who radiated a sense of joy, and was one of the most compassionate and hard-working people with whom we have had the good fortune to work.
We offer our most sincere condolences and prayers to Christine’s family and friends.
