We are looking for organizations whose executive team and/or Board includes at least 51 percent representation from one or more of the communities listed:

  • Native American, Latino/Hispanic or other people of color
  • Persons with experience with homelessness and/or mental health or substance use disorders
    We recognize the unique perspectives, expertise and insights that are possible when organizations are led by people who have “lived experience” navigating the issues they are working to address, such as personal or familial experience living unsheltered, with mental health and substance use challenges.

To establish if your organization meets this requirement, look at the demographics of the people in your organization’s leadership, including: board members, program leadership, and executive team members.
