Leadership Team

Terry Goddard II
Executive Director
Terry Goddard II, a member of the LAC Commission on HIV and the co-chair of its Housing Task Force, has over 26 years in housing services and management. After 15 years at Aid For AIDS he was tapped in 2006 to head up Serra Ancillary Care Corporation as its Executive Director. It was Mr. Goddard's vision that first brought AFA and Serra together, identifying the core competencies in each that, on a shared basis, could strengthen the safety net for all persons living with HIV, increase the housing continuum of-care services and moreover be cost-effective. In 2009, after full endorsement from both boards, with no reduction in program personnel and at a cost savings of $282,743, AFA and Serra merged their highly complementary programs and funding streams into one organization. Since then, we have steadily diversified and expanded to become a sector leader in the “housing first” model of healthcare. In 2013 he received the Center for Nonprofit Management Leadership Impact Award in recognition of the successful merging of AFA and Serra. Terry has a BA and MA in Psychology and in 2017 he successfully completed the Health Care Executive Program at the UCLA Anderson School of Management.
