Harriet Rossetto
Founder, Clinical Director
Harriet Rossetto is a rebel spirit. A self-professed misfit, who felt she was operating her life on the fringe, it is there that she found her fierce calling: helping broken souls and changing a broken system. Harriet was blessed with a missionary spirit and a skeptical mind, which were often at war with one another.

Harriet's belief that addiction is a malady of the soul requiring spiritual healing inspired her to create a thriving community that has supported addicts of all kinds in the process of recovery. She has become something of a Relationship Guru, nurturing budding and fragile families. For Harriet, the greatest reward is witnessing and participating in the miracle of transformation. Her living message is that everyone is capable of redemption, which is why she empowers the residents of Beit T'Shuvah with employment, hiring 90% of her staff from within. Today they are the lifeblood of the organization.

Harriet is now a much sought-after speaker in synagogues and community groups. She received her Masters of Social Work degree from the University of Minnesota. She is now a trainer for the National Association of Social Workers, teaching classes about the treatment and philosophy of the "dis-ease" of addiction. Harriet's latest noteworthy project is her book Sacred Housekeeping, a spiritual memoir.

The community has recognized Harriet's perseverance, commitment and originality in sustaining this unique program. Harriet received the 1991 Alan Kassin award for professional achievement from the Jewish Communal Professionals. In 1991, Harriet received the Vision in Philanthropy Award. Mark Borovitz, Harriet's husband, Head Rabbi of Beit T'Shuvah, describes her as a "lamed vovnick", one of the 36 Righteous people who, in Jewish tradition, are believed to sustain the world.
