Lived Experience Advisory Board of Silicon Valley

The Lived Experience Advisory Board of Silicon Valley (LEABsv) is a leadership development community created and operated by individuals with current or past lived experience of homelessness. Our mission is to empower these individuals by integrating the principles of Inclusion, Diversity, Equity, Access, and Liberation (IDEAL) in all aspects of our work.

Our board is focused on:

Fostering the development of self-determination, leadership skills, and sense of empowerment among consumers

Providing clear lines of communication between leadership, staff, and consumers to resolve issues as they arise and better anticipate future consumer needs

Creating a working partnership between consumers and providers to inform policy development and improve the quality and types of services provided
