Homeless experienced advocacy and leadership network
The Alliance was proud to partner with the San Diego Housing Federation and the Corporation for Supportive Housing on the HEAL program. The San Diego Homeless-Experienced Advocacy and Leadership (HEAL) Network brings the voices of individuals with lived experience of homelessness— who have been most impacted by this crisis— into critical local discourse in a meaningful and effective way, to elevate the discussion, to emphasize the humanity of the affected individuals, and to move public policies toward strategies that are more focused on the individuals who are impacted by this crisis. The program was launched in April 2019 with two training series in North and Central parts of San Diego county to help participants gain knowledge and understanding of their role in influencing a broader discourse on homelessness, and since then, have been engaging in advocacy opportunities to shape public policy on this issue.
