The members of our board are a reflection of our mission to bring together various sectors of the community to address homelessness in the Tampa-Hillsborough County community.

We are grateful for their passion, leadership and commitment to developing innovative solutions to help make homelessness rare, brief, and non-recurring in Hillsborough County.
