Historically, the Homeless Policy Task Force Coordinating Committee (HPTF CC) and the Investing in Families Strategic Advisory Committee (SACC) functioned as separate bodies to fulfill the needs of our community around issues of homelessness and poverty. On August 29, 2013, the two bodies agreed to merge and function under one new governance structure. To facilitate the transition to one governing body, the current members of both bodies were appointed to an Interim Board charged with creating a governance charter over the course of three meetings and several committees. On December 19, 2013, the new governance charter and name of the board were ratified. More information is available on the Partnership to End Homelessness Board webpage.
