Carina Havenstrite



Director of Case Management

Meet Carina

As Director of Case Management, Carina Havenstrite is responsible for the oversight of a team of medical case managers who provide services to clients throughout Northeastern Pennsylvania. She constantly strives to identify and advocate for clients’ needs; through the case management program, clients can receive support in areas including transportation, housing, utilities, food security and linkage to behavioral health and drug and alcohol counseling. Since Carina joined The Wright Center for Community Health, the program has seen profound expansion, including the development of its Prison Linkage and Peer Navigation programs.

Carina grew up in Dunmore and entered Keystone College as an environmental science major. After taking several psychology and sociology electives, her passion for social work emerged, and her new career path was solidified after a series of life-changing international volunteer trips. “Working with HIV-positive patients in Africa gave me exposure and experience that made me realize I wanted to be in a health field,” she says. Carina graduated a semester early with a bachelor’s degree in social science and minors in psychology and sociology. Prior to joining The Wright Center for Community Health, she worked as a case manager at Scranton Counseling Center.

Carina and her family live in Covington Township, where they own and operate an alpaca farm. Still passionate about travel, Carina has participated in several volunteer initiatives in countries including Haiti, Africa and Peru. She shares, “extensive travel and volunteer work have shaped me into the person I am.”
