ABOUT THE COMMUNITY ADVISORY FORUM

AHFE Community Advisory Forum (CAF) was previously the Coordinating Committee to End Homelessness (CCEH) and was the body responsible for overseeing the goals and progress of the past 10-Year Plan to End Homelessness. Now, with the focus of the AHFE Initiative, the committee has refined its purpose and scope, and changed its name to better reflect the following goals:

  1. Provide a solutions-driven forum for those with lived experience of homelessness and front-line service workers to listen and support each other.
  2. Bring consumers, providers and interested community members together to share information, and identify emerging issues and trends.
  3.  A formal space for front-line workers, consumers and community members to provide input and feedback to the AHFE Initiative regarding efforts to end homelessness in Multnomah County, and receive updates on the efforts.
  4.  Provide opportunity for networking, information sharing and training.

MEMBERSHIP

CAF meetings are open to the public and there is no formal membership. Participation ranges from 30-50, representing providers, government departments, service users, and other community members.

CAF is led by the CAF Steering Committee, a committee of eight to twelve members whose responsibilities include setting agendas for CAF meetings and guiding discussions and recommendations for the Coordinating Board and other issues related to ending homelessness.

MEETING FREQUENCY

Meetings convene on the third Wednesday of every month and are held from 2:00 to 4:00 pm at the Bud Clark Commons, 1st Floor Multi-Purpose Room, located at 650 NW Irving Street, Portland OR. Metered parking available on streets or in parking lots near Union Station.

EXTERNAL COMMUNICATIONS

CAF maintains an email distribution list with more than 300 contact names and provides email communication about meeting notices, policy updates and announcements.
