Hospital to Home Coordinator
Master of Laws (Human Rights), Bachelor of Laws, Bachelor of Arts (Anthropology and Political Science)
Sholeh Rutstein is responsible for ascertaining the housing needs and preferences of people with disability who are unable to leave a hospital setting due to a lack of suitable housing.
She was involved in the pre-pilot stage of the Housing Brokerage Service project, which refined Summer Foundation processes in order to provide intervention with increased efficiency.
After completing her law degree, Sholeh pursued a Masters in Human Rights Law in the USA. She gained extensive experience in Washington, DC, and later returned to Australia where she continues to pursue her passion for human rights with the Summer Foundation. The lived experience of a close family member living with a disability further inspires Sholeh in her passion to build a more just community for all.
