Partnership to End Homelessness
The Orange County Partnership to End Homelessness (OCPEH) is a coalition of local government officials, service providers, and community members formed to end homelessness in our community. The OCPEH Governance Charter details Committee structure, funding, and more.
The Leadership Team is the governing body of the Orange County Partnership to End Homelessness. People who live and/or work in Orange County and are interested in providing leadership to ending homelessness are encouraged to apply to serve on the Leadership Team. The Board Development Committee is currently recruiting members to serve starting January 2017. Please submit applications by October 15 to be considered for the this round of recruitment. Applications are also accepted year-round.
