The Board of Directors represents Partners Ending Homelessness (PEH) in its relations with the community, with fundraising organizations, and with groups responsible for the allocation and distribution of funds for the support and operation of PEH and the Continuum of Care.
In keeping with the need to represent all facets of homelessness in Guilford County, Board membership shall represent a broad and widely diverse cross‑section of the region. Membership should consist of representation of persons from, but not limited to, the following areas:
a) People who have experienced homelessness (currently or formerly);
b) Private, non‑profit, homeless service‑providers in the community
c) Business community, including representation from large and small businesses;
d) Representation of local governments (City of Greensboro, City of High Point, Guilford County);
e) Religious organizations in the community;
f) Local neighborhood or civic associations;
g) the United Ways of Greater Greensboro and Greater High Point;
h) an officer of the Guilford County Continuum of Care.
Representatives from the local governments will serve ex-officio and will be designated by the administrative or executive branches of the local governments represented. Ex-officio members are full voting members of the board and are accorded the same responsibilities and privileges as other board members.
The composition of the Board of Directors shall reflect a firm commitment to broad diversification and shall not be based on race, gender, religious affiliation, color, national origin, age, disability, sexual orientation or identity, marital status or any other characteristic prohibited by state or federal law.
