SRCEH was founded in July 2013, after Bob Erlenbusch, founder, met with key advocates in the community to determine their interest in being on a founding board & was well received.
The current board represents formerly homeless people, civil rights attorneys, healthcare, homeless youth & housing advocates, direct service providers & the interfaith community.
The first board meeting was held September, 2013. SRCEH received an initial capacity building grant of $7500 from the Sierra Health Foundation in December, 2013.
We are in the process of building our Strategic Advisory Board [founding organizational members] - which currently is at 22 members and expanding.
SRCEH received its nonprofit status in April, 2014.
