As a Person With Lived Experience of Homelessness, Anthony Williams Makes Meaningful Contributions to the Continuum of Care

Anthony is the Co-chair of the Baltimore City Continuum of Care (CoC), The Journey Home. The CoC is a U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Program that coordinates resources and partnerships, while also promoting the community-wide commitment to make homelessness rare, brief, and nonrecurring.

As a person with lived experience of homelessness, Anthony’s voice is critical in the planning, decision-making, and activities undertaken by the CoC. To continue uplifting the voices of those closest to the problem, we encourage anyone with current or past lived experience to share their solutions.

If you are interested in contributing to the progress of our homeless services system, please attend a Lived Experience Advisory Committee (LEAC) meeting or join an Action Committee with the CoC.

The picture above is Anthony speaking at the 2023 Point-In-Time (PIT) Count. The PIT count is a count of sheltered and unsheltered homeless persons on a single night in January, mandated by HUD.
