Resident Advisory Committee
All members of the Home Forward community have a voice in major policy decisions through the Resident Advisory Committee.
When Home Forward looks at big decisions that may impact a large part of our community, we want to hear from the people who participate in our different housing programs. The job of the Resident Advisory Committee is to be that voice. The committee is made up of 10-20 volunteers who either live in a Home Forward apartment or participate in our Section 8 program.
The committee holds at least four public meetings every year, and reports the results of their work to Home Forward’s Board of Commissioners. The Resident Commissioner of the Board also co-chairs the advisory committee.
The committee is not involved in specific building maintenance, operations or staffing issues, or resident disputes. This allows the committee to be inclusive of the opinions and experiences of the entire Home Forward community.
Join the Committee.
Resident Advisory Committee members are recruited annually. The next application opportunity is anticipated for summer 2013.
The next Resident Advisory Committee public meeting will be held Tuesday, April 23 at Hollywood East at 1605 NE 45th Ave, Portland. The meeting will begin at 6:00pm. Guests who would like to give public comment are asked to arrive promptly and sign in with a staff member.
The meeting site is accessible, and persons with disabilities may call 503.802.8492 or 503.802.8554 (TTY) to request accommodations (e.g. assisted listening devices, sign language, and/or oral interpreter) at least three business days before the scheduled meeting. Only service animals are welcome to public meetings.
