Managing Director of Development


For over thirty years, PRC has supported people affected by HIV/AIDS, substance use, or mental health issues by providing integrated services that address the broad range of social risk factors impacting wellness and limiting human potential. PRC’s services include crisis care and emergency financial assistance for short-term security; legal advocacy for access to basic income and health care benefits for mid-term stabilization; and residential treatment, supportive housing, and employment training for longer-term social rehabilitation. Each year, PRC’s programs provide over 5,000 clients with a path toward long-term stability and success.


In 2017, three nonprofits merged — Positive Resource Center, Baker Places, and AIDS Emergency Fund — to become PRC, the region’s only human service agency with the integrated legal, social, and health expertise to holistically address many of the problems San Francisco faces, including chronic homelessness. Since the merger, PRC has launched several multi-million-dollar initiatives, including the nation’s first Homeless Navigation Center on a city hospital campus. It has also strengthened its core programs: Emergency Financial Aid, Residential Treatment and Housing, Legal Advocacy, and Workforce Development. Its budget has grown from $4 million to $27 million.

As demand for its services has increased, PRC has undertaken a major fundraising initiative to raise $7M to construct and equip its new San Francisco Integrated Service Center. The Center will enable PRC to consolidate all non-residential treatment services (employment services, legal representation, emergency financial assistance, and benefits counseling) and house PRC’s administrative offices. The building, to be opened in April 2019, will include a state-of -the-art computer lab, employment training rooms, and a convening space for public forums.




Reporting to the Chief Strategy Officer (CSO), the Managing Director of Development (MDD) is responsible for planning and implementing PRC's annual fundraising campaign to increase support from both institutional and individual donors.
