M1.10 Including the Consumer Voice in Planning and Administration(SA)
Services should be responsive to the needs and wants of those who are meant to receive them. In this workshop, speakers will discuss the value of including the consumer voice on the boards of Continuums of Care and permanent supportive housing programs, and other programs and organizations that provide homeless services. Topics will include recruiting consumers for planning, and the insights of consumers who have drawn on their experiences in the homeless system to inform their work on these boards.
