Homeless Family Services

Goblesky, Linda
Linda Goblesky has been employed with AHI since January of 1999 and is currently the Program administrator for the Homeless Families Service Program and Braddock Apartments.

Watching her grandfather give up his last streetcar token to someone sleeping on the bench or seeing him give up his lunch to a gentlemen on the street he knew had not eaten in days was a great inspiration to her. Following in his footsteps she pursued a career in social services with also having a background in drug and alcohol, domestic violence and grief counseling.
