Welcome Director of Area Operations Laveda Bacetti


Last week, Laveda Bacetti joined the Health Care for the Homeless team as our new director of area operations. Laveda will spend a lot of her time on the go, making sure everything is running smoothly at our West Baltimore and Baltimore County clinics. We’re glad to have her on board!

Before coming to us, Laveda spent 10 years at the Baltimore City Health Department, most recently as the director of maternal and infant care. In that role, she oversaw a program that lends in-home support to underserved women throughout pregnancy and infancy. Long before that, she was on a pre-med track specializing in geriatric care, but realized she wanted to help people be and get healthy earlier on in their lives and help prevent illness and disease long before they set in. A career change to public health ensued.

Laveda is passionate about helping individuals from underserved communities, and had heard great things about Health Care for the Homeless, so she jumped at the opportunity to join our team and help advance the agency mission.    

Laveda is a Baltimore girl, born and raised. She enjoys cooking (and eating!) and spending time with her husband and two children. And, if you’re interested in learning how to salsa or merengue, Laveda can certainly teach you a thing or two—she used to be a Latin dance instructor!

Welcome to Health Care for the Homeless, Laveda.
