The Lived Experience Advisory Board is a leadership development body consisting of members with current or past experience of homelessness. Members use this platform to learn about and evaluate the system of care and to make recommendations for improvement.
Our board is focused on:
Fostering the development of self-determination, leadership skills, and sense of empowerment among consumers
Providing clear lines of communication between leadership, staff, and consumers to resolve issues as they arise and better anticipate future consumer needs
Creating a working partnership between consumers and providers to inform policy development and improve the quality and types of services provided
