Director of Programs
Raquel (Rocki) Simões is a white Brazilian who came to the United States in the late 80s, fell in love with women and rice krispies treats (not necessarily in that order) and decided to stay. Most of her community organizing work has focused on queer/trans youth, homelessness, host homes, and social justice. Most of her personal work has focused on striving to be a loving friend, partner, ex-partner, anti-racist community member, and parent. On a good day she does some of these things well. Rocki joined Face to Face in November of 2020 after 14 years at Avenues for Youth and is excited to be the new Director of Programs here.
