What does the PHA Board do?


With the help of some part-time administrative support, PHA’s funding and operations are largely brought to life by our passionate volunteer Board of Directors. The Board is supported by PHA's professional members and passionate warmline volunteers; However, PHA's existence ultimately relies on each Board member's dedication and ability to independently carry out their position's role and commitments.
