On March 9, 2018, three mental health professionals lost their lives from gun violence by a former resident under treatment at Pathway Home. One of the victims, Executive Director of the Pathway Home program at the Veterans Home of California, Christine Loeber, was a master’s prepared Social Worker.
Veterans Home of California and the Pathway Home program, has been a partner with the USC Suzanne Dworak-Peck School of Social Work VAC since 2012 and have hosted over 16 of our MSW students in field practicum. NASW-CA paid tribute to the incredible work Christine Loeber provided to the Social Work profession and her commitment to our Veteran and Military members. In continued support of our partnership with Veterans Home of California, we reached out in support and condolences of the tragic loss experienced that day.
