HLC Governing Board
The HLC Governing Board is made up of thirteen elected members who are charged with establishing policies and directing the activities of the HLC and its committees, thereby ensuring the responsibilities of the HLC/CoC as outlined in the Governance Charter and the Policies and Procedures, as well as other responsibilities as deemed appropriate by the Governing Board, are effectively carried out in service of the mission of the HLC. Members govern the overall direction of the HLC and provide input and resources to the HLC’s work. The board reviews and makes recommendations regarding committee activities, approves policies, and makes decisions regarding organizational direction, as well as funding prioritization and oversight as appropriate. Board members may represent one of three broad categories: 1) Community Action Committee Representatives; 2) Civic or Mainstream Partners: people representing government, regional collaboratives or entities, funders, mainstream resource providers (ie. health care, employment, education, etc.), law enforcement, businesses, or faith-based communities; and 3) Partners At-Large, which may include homeless service providers, community members/advocates, and at least two people with lived experience of homelessness.
