Resident Support Specialist
Lindsey’s work has encompassed a variety of things – from working with people experiencing homelessness in case management and a day shelter to accompanying adults with developmental disabilities in daily activities to fighting for justice as a community organizer on housing and criminal justice campaigns, and most recently she worked as a chaplain (in training) in the emergency room. In each role, she has found that her vocation is rooted in affirming the goodness of each person, resisting oppression and its narratives, and accompanying folks on their journey to thrive. Lindsey holds a master’s degree in social justice. In her free time, she makes a mean cup of joe, loves to read, and write, and enjoys animals and being barefoot in the sunshine.
Program & Volunteer Coordinator
Chris brings his experience as a local church pastor, hospital chaplain, and labor organizer to the work of Assisi House, hoping to cultivate communities that meet the needs of our residents.

He believes that connection, community, and solidarity can mend wounds and help people become agents of transformation in the world.
When not working with the residents and volunteer base at Assisi House, Chris is parenting Nora, Leo, and Sam; organizing for a more just world; and forever searching for the best grub in STL
