Lived Experience Commission

The Lived Experience Commission (LEC) is a coalition of individuals who are receiving or have received services from Chicago’s homeless system, people who were formerly homeless, or people at risk of becoming homeless. This commission was formed to ensure an organized voice for those with lived experience of homelessness. 

To learn more about the Lived Experience Commission, please contact Larry Smith or Julie McKelphin.
