Re: Mandate homeless people on nonprofit boards and staff?

HUD funds have long required the inclusion of homeless and formerly homeless
on boards and other governing bodies of nonprofit organizations, as well as
local planning councils.  Unfortunately, there has never been any enforcement
by HUD of this requirement.  Frankly, i believe it makes a lotta sense to have
homeless and formerly homeless people on boards and staff, since we know best
what the real issues are, where the service gaps are, and what it really takes
to get back on your feet.
