In 2018, the Toronto Alliance to End Homelessness hosted a People With Lived Experience reference group who met regularly to discuss and recommend how PWLE should be integrated in the Toronto Alliance to End Homelessness. The group presented a report to the TAEH’s Steering Committee in November 2018 with the following key recommendations:

  • To adopt a “Nothing about Us Without US” governance model

  • Creation and support of a PWLE caucus

  • Establish a mentorship program

  • TAEH undergo a cultural audit

  • Hire a PWLE staff member

The Toronto Alliance to End Homelessness will be developing a PWLE caucus in Spring of 2019. You can access the report here.
