Residential Program Director
Francisco Rendon graduated from Northern Arizona University with a Bachelor’s in Psychology. In 1999, he began his professional career working in community mental health. During that time he worked with children and families dealing with severe to mild mental health concerns. He experienced working the full range of personality and mental health disorders and was responsible in providing services to provide stabilization. From 2005 to 2013, he worked for Child Protective Services as a child abuse investigator and a reunification specialist. He worked cases dealing with criminal child abuse, domestic violence, sexual abuse, and drug abuse. Francisco has extensive experience in conflict resolution, family systems assessment, forensic interviewing, and recovery services.
Since early in his childhood, he has had a need to be of service and to help. He grew up in Tucson, AZ, on the southside, where problems were plenty and resources limited. Francisco saw a lot of dysfunction and sadness in those early experiences and they shaped him into becoming a person that tries to create love and peace where chaos lives. He had many powerful mentors in those early years that pushed him to become bigger than my environment and to be of service whenever possible. Now it is his turn to be a mentor to young men that are lost and in need of direction.
Francisco believes that our greatest strength at B2B is not that we have the right answers, but we are fearless in asking the right questions.
“Start by doing what’s necesary; then do what’s possible; and suddenly you are doing the impossible.” -St. Francis of Assisi
