Our staff sets the table for collective impact, bringing important partners together for the children and families of San Francisco.
As the Our Children Our Families Council Administrative Analyst, Alecia manages budgets, calendars, and all moving parts so that the Council functions optimally and best serves the community. Though she has since earned her Bachelors in Business Management and Masters in Public Administration, Alecia struggled with her own challenges academically, vocationally, and socially as a teen in San Francisco's public housing. With the help of mentors and years of study, Alecia is dedicated to providing helpful services to others who are challenged by systemic disenfranchisement in her hometown. Prior to her work as Council Coordinator, Alecia worked in roles supporting students' academic goals beyond high school, and promoting greater access for City College students.
Luisʼ path to OCOF has been anything but linear. He takes his role as advocate, activist and support system to heart, focusing on outreach and spending much of his time in the community. A native San Franciscan and first generation Latinx, he has found his passion for community building through the sacred process of healing. Luis has channeled the rage of early years - mired in harsh realities of economic constraints, social opportunity, and rampant violence in San Francisco's Mission District - into a career spent serving at-risk youth and building capacity for the services available to them. Before joining OCOF, Luis worked in the San Francisco District Attorneyʼs Office to reduce use of long-term incarceration, and with local nonprofits such as the Peninsula Conflict Resolution Center, Arriba Juntos, Inc., and the Boys and Girls Clubs of San Francisco.
Simone has spent the majority of her career working for and with the City & County she calls home. In her role as OCOFʼs Senior Analyst, she urges onwards the overarching goal of collective impact through project management, data analysis, and evaluation for equitable and institutional systems change. Before joining the OCOF team, she worked with the Human Services Agency in 2016 as a Senior Analyst and at the San Francisco Public Utilities Commission from 2011-2016, ascending to sole Contract & Budget Analyst and overseeing highly visible formal contracts and complex operating budgets. Driven by her experiences in the public sector, Simone finds everyday inspiration in lending her analytic background to the Councilʼs mission so close to her heart.
