We create lived experts via leadership development training. We provide in-depth systems knowledge and direct access to local and national leaders in housing and homelessness. Our advocates also receive professional speaker training from Housing Narrative Labs to maximize their impact within the community.
Our advocates address legislative bodies, community meetings, conferences and respond to media requests. They serve as civic leaders in over 30 positions on local and national boards, committees, and commissions.
Training advisers on how to become engaging and effective speakers, by providing ongoing mentorship and guidance.
Consulting on the development of programs from a lived experience, and trauma informed perspective.
Just this year we have addressed the San Diego City Council over 50 times, the San Diego County Board of Supervisors 20 times, and community groups and clubs over ten times.
Families with children make up 30% of homeless populations.
