Welcome to CFRA's new Director

We are excited to welcome our new Director, Michael Williams!

Michael has more than two decades of experience in organizational leadership and service to families, most recently as Deputy Director for Programs at the Children's Council of San Francisco. He also has worked at Casey Family Programs, Contra Costa Child Care Council, and United Cerebral Palsy of the Golden Gate, and he has taught a course in human services at College of Alameda. Michael has a Master of Social Work degree from San Francisco State University, with a focus on organizational and community development.

Becoming part of vital services to families throughout California is especially exciting for Michael. Along with having led and participated in numerous statewide collaborations, he is a native Californian and at different points in his life has lived, studied, and/or worked in LA, Sonora, Santa Clara, Napa, Richmond, Oakland, and San Francisco.

Michael has two children in their 20s and a 13 year-old. He lives with his wife Heidi and son Justin in Alameda, though they are looking forward to moving to Sacramento this Summer.
