Thoughts and Perspectives from CAC Members
Consumer Advisory Council (CAC) members bring different
perspectives and their own sets of homeless experiences to
the council’s discussions and together they serve as a
collective voice for the local homeless community.
Establishing a group of consumers was included in the 10-Year
Plan to Prevent and End Homelessness and is a critical
element of the Plan’s success.
