Leadership Council

LC Clean Up Crew (600x398)By championing the end of chronic and veteran homelessness, we are building a stronger community where all businesses can thrive.

The research is clear—chronic and veteran homelessness has a high human and financial cost. The private sector has a critical role to play in ending chronic and veteran homelessness, and it’s not just the right thing to do—it is the smart, cost-effective thing to do.

Our Leadership Council are senior executives who:

  • Represent Miriam’s Kitchen leadership at their respective organizations and networking events
  • Believe in the power of partnership in ending homelessness and advise on partnership strategy
  • Invest financially in and fundraise for Miriam’s Kitchen
  • Connect Miriam’s Kitchen to new private sector partners and build relationships with current partners
  • Participate in volunteer activities, Leadership Council meetings, and advocacy days


Our Leadership Council accelerates partnerships that move the needle on ending chronic and veteran homelessness – while having some fun too!
