Heading Home Advisory Council

In order to fully coordinate homeless funds in St Louis County, it was our collective vision that there would be one advisory body that would eventually oversee all Federal, State, and local homeless funds. The newly formed advisory committee would have both City of Duluth and St Louis County appointed members.

This leadership council has 15 appointed Commissioners. The appointed Governance Board is charged with:
  • Monitoring and advisement of homeless funds
  • Staying current with local needs and gaps
  • Best practices to prevent and end homelessness
