Press Contact: Edie Irons, [email protected], (510) 334-1344[San Francisco, CA] – Following All Home Founder and CEO Tomiquia Moss’s appointment to serve as California’s next Secretary of the Business, Consumer Services and Housing Agency, All Home’s Advisory Board has appointed Brett Andrews as Interim Chief Executive. Tomiquia Moss will be sworn into her new role at the State on Tuesday, February 13th.
Interim Chief Executive Brett Andrews is a longtime nonprofit leader and innovator with a deep commitment to reducing racial disparities in who experiences homelessness and poverty. From 2003-2022, Brett led PRC, a large nonprofit that provides services for San Franciscans affected by poverty, HIV/AIDS, substance use, and mental illness to reclaim their lives and realize their full potential. In 2019 he also founded the statewide Black Leadership Council, a cross-sector coalition of Black leaders set on improving outcomes for Black Californians across systems of health, wealth, housing, and education.
“Everyone needs a safe place to call home, and I believe All Home’s regional leadership can help make that need a reality in the Bay Area. Tomiquia has given this organization an incredibly strong start. I’m honored to help carry the work forward to create the housing and economic security that people with extremely low incomes need to survive and thrive,” said Interim Chief Executive Officer Brett Andrews.
“Tomiquia’s appointment is a testament to All Home’s approach, and the team she built is well-positioned to continue their impactful work. We’re confident that Brett’s leadership, fundraising, and collaboration skills will serve the team and the mission well,” said Amie Fishman, Chair of All Home’s Advisory Board and the Executive Director of the Non-Profit Housing Association of Northern California.
“All Home consistently delivers results for our region. They are a proven champion for racial justice spearheading a regional approach in both policies and services. I have complete confidence that the team will continue to operate at the highest levels under Brett’s leadership,” said Fred Blackwell, CEO of the San Francisco Foundation, a funder of All Home.
All Home also welcomed four new members to its Advisory Board:
- Nikki Beasley, Executive Director of Richmond Neighborhood Housing Services, Inc.
- Brandy Jenkins-League, Program Manager at Bay Area Community Services, and Chair of All Home’s Community Advisory Council
- Preston Prince, Executive Director of Santa Clara County Housing Authority
- Libby Schaaf, Former Mayor of Oakland, currently a lecturer at UC Berkeley’s Goldman School of Public Policy and HUD’s appointee to the Metropolitan Transportation Commission
“All Home plays a critical role in the Bay Area—aligning our counties and cities, service providers, business leaders, and philanthropy around holistic solutions to some of our toughest challenges. I’m excited for Brett to take the helm and support the organization through what we hope will be a watershed year for housing justice in the Bay Area,” said Libby Schaaf.
All Home advances regional solutions that disrupt the cycles of poverty and homelessness, redress racial disparities, and create more economic mobility opportunities for people with extremely low incomes.
