We are looking for up to 10 community members who will meet quarterly to discuss how Heading Home and its members can develop more effective plans to prevent homelessness, improve services and expand the housing continuum. Attendees will be provided a hot meal and $35 gift card per meeting. The meeting will be scheduled once we have identified 10 committed members. To apply, send a paragraph or 1 minute video to firstname.lastname@example.org about why you want to participate in the Lived Experience Committee. View Application & Flyer here!
