Dana Brawerman, RADT
Dana Brawerman is the intake coordinator for Foundations San Francisco. In college, Dana became heavily involved with community outreach while working in the Student Life and Leadership office. There, she gained a lot of experience working with local organizations who provided support and resources for those suffering from a myriad of socioeconomic barriers including addiction, homelessness, abuse, and unemployment. A former Paramedic, Dana realized behavioral health was her passion while working in the field. Dana’s first official role working in the behavioral field was with children and adolescents with developmental delays. She provided one-on-one behavioral analysis and intervention, facilitated peer socialization groups and outings, and trained/onboarded behavior interventionists. Dana then moved on to the role of resident advocate at a transitional housing facility that specialized in crisis intervention and advocacy for those experiencing acute and chronic homelessness. Originally from the suburbs of Chicago, Dana thrives on connecting with others and creating a safe space for those around her. She is honored to be a part of the intake process and making sure incoming and prospective clients feel heard and cared for. In her free time, Dana enjoys taking advantage of the beautiful Bay Area weather, cooking, art and DIY, and cuddling with her giant black and white cat, Jake.
