InnVision Shelter Network Creates Young Community Leaders Board to Tackle Local Homelessness

MENLO PARK, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 03/03/14 -- InnVision Shelter Network (IVSN) is excited to announce the creation of its NextGen Advisory Board. This new initiative brings together young professional leaders in the Bay Area who are socially conscious and striving to make an impact. The NextGen Advisory Board will drive strategic and tactical innovation by leveraging their knowledge of technology and social media tools. The Board will also focus on increasing awareness within the young professional population of Silicon Valley about the severity of homelessness and the successful methods IVSN employs to tackle homelessness in our community.

The founding cohort of twelve Board members has strong professional and academic backgrounds and includes professionals from large tech companies, emerging growth companies, venture capital firms and social sector organizations. InnVision Shelter Network CEO Karae Lisle said, "It's important to recognize and foster the commitment of the millennial generation to homelessness and nonprofit leadership. There are new and innovative ideas about how to tackle poverty and we are thrilled to have a diverse group committed to using their skills and experience to further IVSN's mission of ending homelessness."
