A Home for Everyone is led by its Executive Committee, which by charter includes Portland’s Mayor and Housing Commissioner, the County Chair, a second County Commissioner, the Mayor of Gresham or a designated Councilor, the Director of Home Forward, and representatives from the faith, philanthropic and business communities.

The Executive Committee is supported by a Coordinating Board made up of appointed community members and leaders from the non‐profit, health, education, public safety, business, and government sectors, as well as several strategic Coordinating Board subcommittees.
