The Council’s National Consumer Advisory Board (NCAB) gives people with lived experience of homelessness a voice in national issues involving the health care and housing of people without homes. NCAB works to achieve this mission through their focus on empowering and uplifting this voice through our storytelling and our newsletter, The Consumer Voice.
NCAB works to train and support consumers in telling their stories to challenge the stigma of homelessness and shed light on the reality. NCAB created our own Storytelling Guide, which talks about key components in developing your story and emotional considerations for storytelling. The manual also includes worksheets to be used in developing your personal story.
