Director of Programs
Brittany Hodge began her career at St. Anthony’s providing direct service as a social worker in 2009. She learned first-hand what is required to meet St. Anthony’s guests’ immediate needs and start their path towards stability. Before moving to the Bay Area, Brittany provided direct services in a mental health residential treatment program, a shelter for survivors of relational abuse, and conducted homeless outreach.
After several years of providing direct service at St. Anthony’s, she pivoted her skill-set to become the Learning and Evaluation Manager, leading the development and utilization of the Efforts to Outcomes (ETO) database to track client demographics, programmatic outputs, outcomes, and impact. During that time she also pursued her Master’s in Public Administration from San Francisco State, specializing in program management, program evaluation, and organizational learning.
As the Director of Programs, Brittany is responsible for overseeing the operations and programming in the following areas: St. Anthony’s Dining Room, Social Work Center, Tenderloin Tech Lab, Free Clothing Program, Client Safety Services, and Learning and Evaluation. Email
Director of Asset Management and Facilities
Traci Lewis, a San Francisco native and our Director of Asset Management and Facilities since 2012, brings with her a passion for facilitating change and giving back in underserved communities. At her time of hire, she was charged with the task of working as a Project Manager, helping to oversee the construction of our new Dining Room at 121 Golden Gate Avenue, which was successfully completed in 2014. Her 20+ years as a local real estate broker and experience working for the City of Oakland as an Affordable Housing Developer readied her for this undertaking.
Currently, Traci and her Operations team are responsible for the on-going management and maintenance of all St. Anthony’s buildings. Traci also oversees long-range planning for facilities service development and delivery, central purchasing operations, and on-going construction projects for the entire Foundation.
In her spare time, Traci serves on the board of directors for a non-profit job readiness training program in the Tenderloin that helps participants overcome various barriers to employment. Email
Director of Finance and IT
Carl Taibl has served as St. Anthony’s Director of Finance and IT since 2015, though he refers to himself as the Foundation’s CNO (Chief Numbers Officer), responsible for anything with a number on it. Carl believes in integrating the mission of the Foundation from the outside, adding value by sharing his analytical point of view. Prior to St. Anthony’s, Carl operated as CFO of the law firm Hanson Bridget and then at a nonprofit for over a decade. Prior to his tenure as CFO, Carl was Controller of the major law firm Pillsbury Winthrop. He began his career as a Certified Public Accountant in public accounting and holds a Master’s degree in Business Administration from Northwestern University with honors and a Bachelor’s degree in Accounting from Northern Illinois University.
When not at work Carl spends time hiking hills in Danville with his rescue German Shepherd. His favorite book is “From Values to Action” by Harry M. Kraemer, which is reflected in his work ethic dating back to his being the first Eagle Scout of his troop, “to leave something in better condition than when he arrived.” Email
Director of Human Resources
Bryan Young has served as our Director of Human Resources since 2017.
