Caroline Caselli


I started Haven Connect because I witnessed systemic barriers to the persistent issues of homelessness and I committed to using my skills interest and expertise to do something about it. My empathy for the homeless grew from volunteering at a homeless shelter in high school. During college where I graduated cum laude from the University of Southern California I researched how to increase vegetable consumption among food pantry participants many of whom were homeless. Following university I worked as a social worker in homeless shelters and permanent supportive housing for 4 years. I helped homeless families find housing then oversaw the support services delivery for 5 buildings that housed 700 formerly homeless single adults. I pioneered partnerships for needle exchange and jobs for my clients. These experiences strengthened my resolve that real solutions start with understanding the people most affected. To this day I believe user testing both sides of the market will foster Haven Connect s success. I m also a lifelong learner strategic visionary and pragmatic. I did not go to business school when I started dreaming of Haven Connect. Instead I pulled together resources found a lead engineer (who has remained on my team) and began prototyping my product. I ve taught myself how to design product navigate government bureaucracy and sell to property managers. I also joined programs where I could further develop my leadership skills and expand my networks such as Starting Bloc the New Leaders Council and the Unreasonable Institute. I enjoy the thrill of developing my skills to solve a pervasive systemic issue one I plan to spend the rest of my life on.
