Celebrating over 40 years of service to individuals, families, and communities in the San Francisco Bay Area.

Martina McCormick has been working with BACR National Service for over 3 years - both as an AmeriCorps member and as a staff member.  In Martina’s 3 years at BACR she has worked very hard to exemplify BACR's best practices.  She has never shied away from doing whatever it takes to get the job done, especially when it comes to recruiting and hiring local community members to join our AmeriCorps programs and serve their respective communities.  

 Martina hits the ground running to recruit local community members, and uses every means possible to do so. She is always the biggest advocate for our AmerICorps members, guaranteeing that they receive the best support possible to enjoy a successful term.  Martina exemplifies 2 of BACR best practices: 

 1.  Recognizing the needs and strengths of the people we serve and supporting their development.

 2. Working within communities and building alliances to meet community needs.

  • Since I've been blessed with the chance to have a good education and many opportunities, I feel obligated to give back and to use the education and the experiences I've had to make an impact.

  • Seeing the kids' growth through the years, despite the odds being against a lot of them, for whatever reason, is what inspires me to stay here.

  • I am motivated by all the great people that work for BACR and the wonderful things they do. My great reward is knowing that I can help them in their work to support communities all over the Bay.

  • Helping other people is what inspires me to work here. Being able to change people's lives, by helping them understand their problems with alcohol, is a huge contribution to my inspiration here.

  • I know that, if I am able to overcome hard struggles in my life and do my best at achieving success, I can encourage the young people that I advocate to do their best as well.
