Karyn Young-Lowe, President & CEO

Karyn Young-Lowe holds a Masters in Social Welfare from UCLA and has substantial experience in the fields of mental health services, substance abuse treatment and homeless services. LightHouse Social Service Centers was founded by Karyn Young-Lowe in an effort to employ creative interventions that address the numerous issues affecting the lives of persons living in homelessness and persons who are striving to recover from addiction.

Ms. Young-Lowe first obtained her substance abuse treatment experience from Prototypes Women’s Center in Los Angeles County, as the manager of the Casa Works for Families Program, a federally-funded grant program, which focused on vocational and employment services for women recovering from drug and alcohol addiction. Ms. Young-Lowe later became the Program Director for Prototypes Women’s Center residential and outpatient services, with responsibility for a licensed 203-bed residential treatment facility and a 150 client outpatient program. Ms. Young-Lowe also worked as a Children’s Social Worker for Los Angeles County Department of Children and Family Services, and as a hospital social worker at San Antonio Community Hospital and Inter-Community Hospital.

Ms. Young-Lowe has built a solid and dedicated board of directors, hired enthusiastic staff, developed a professional Community Advisory Committee, and cultivated effective community partnerships. Ms. Young-Lowe also supervises an extremely talented group of interns and volunteers.
