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

Kristy has been with BACR since our start in running San Francisco after school programs.  Given Kristy’s strong background and skills her first job was to address the challenges at Guadalupe Elementary. 

Kristy not only got Guadalupe up and running, she turned it into a District-wide model site.   Whenever BACR or the school district needs to set up a site visit with Region IV, Federal Auditors, Curriculum Developers, or other visiting schools, we have them visit Kristy’s program.

Kristy has naturally served as a mentor to new site coordinators and other managers. This year she has transitioned into a Program Manager for San Francisco Afterschool. 

The SF team is lucky to have her. Not only for her kind and humorous spirit, but also because of the expertise she brings to the table. The best complement the SF Afterschool team can pay Kristy is, “If we were starting out in the after school world, we would want Kristy to be our Site Coordinator.” 

  • 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.
