East House welcomes new leader

Lindsay Gozzi-Theobald is the new president and CEO of East House. 


Gozzi-Theobald is responsible for overseeing the agency’s programs, administration and finances, as well as mentoring the executive leadership team and supporting the strategic vision and growth of East House. 

She is succeeding Kim Brumber, who left the organization in May. 

“I’m thrilled to join this team and lead with the board, staff and funders who support the journey of recovery for so many individuals and families,” Gozzi-Theobald said. “East House is a critical housing provider in our community with a reputation that I am proud to be a part of.”  

Gozzi-Theobald brings a 15-year portfolio of building teams and partnerships across organizations and leading strategic initiatives in both for-profit and nonprofit organizations. 

Gozzi-Theobald most recently served as the chief program officer at the Villa of Hope, where she was responsible for the oversight of all community-based and residential programs. Prior to Villa of Hope, she held leadership roles at Prime Care Coordination, L3Harris Corp. and Catholic Charities Diocese of Rochester. 

“Lindsay has a habit of making herself indispensable in every role she has held,” said Patty Philips, East House board chair. “Her career trajectory is one of taking on and succeeding with larger and larger roles, and we are fortunate to capitalize on her strategic growth mindset in the role of East House’s president and CEO.”  

East House provides recovery services and program to individuals in recovery from mental illness and substance use disorders.
