Board & Staff

Across all areas of the agency, PRC has strived to be culturally competent, represented by a diverse board and staff that mirror the broad spectrum of our clients and our community. Ultimately, our success is defined by the life-changing outcomes we obtain for our clients.

A Message from CEO Brett Andrews

PRC has been part of the Bay Area community for decades, helping people affected by HIV/AIDS, substance use, and mental health issues realize their best selves by providing the support and the services they need to reclaim their lives.

But, as much as we’re here to support the community, we couldn’t do it without the community’s support in turn. PRC is backed by an amazing group of people – from our donors to our volunteers to our advisors, board, and staff. Every one of them sees the value and potential of ALL people and demonstrates both kindness and dedication as they do their part to serve the underserved, helping them gain the respect, the attention, and the opportunities they’re entitled to.

At PRC, we believe everyone deserves an advocate and an opportunity. Below, you can learn about just a few of the passionate, compassionate people helping others along on their journey – speaking up, standing up, and fighting for people who are too often marginalized or ignored.

Thank you so much for your support. We’re all part of this community – together, we’re making it that much stronger.
