Lived Experience Advisory Committee Recruitment

The The Lived Experience Advisory Committee (LEAC) functions in an advisory capacity to the Continuum of Care (CoC) Board and is intended to ensure that the voices and perspectives of individuals with current or past lived experience of homelessness are elevated in the decision-making process of the Orange County CoC. The LEAC also provides a mechanism to share recommendations
and feedback on the CoC and its programs and services. The LEAC may be called on to collaborate with and/or support other CoC Committees for the purposes of evaluation and systems improvement. 

The Office of Care Coordination, on behalf of the LEAC, is facilitating the recruitment and selection process for a Youth Representative (ages 18 - 24) to serve on the LEAC.
