Consumer Advisory Board

This post is also available in: Español (Spanish)

The Consumer Advisory Board (CAB) was created to empower Casa’s clients in recovery to actively participate in the decisions made regarding programming and services, and assist with community outreach.

Through CAB meetings, education about Casa Esperanza programs to others, experience of the “committee/board process” and active participation in the meetings, CAB members become stakeholders in the recovery community and become a voice for the recovery community and Casa Esperanza. CAB also provides a mechanism for open communication for people in recovery to have meaningful input into the development of policies, activities, and programming by Casa Esperanza providers. They can suggest new services or events for consideration by the management team of the agency and offer significant suggestions in Casa’s special events held annually like graduation, community picnic, fishing trip, and other similar events. CAB members act as a representative of consumers between the agency and consumers. They also represent Casa Esperanza at events and community activities.

CasaCAB membership is open to the following:

  • Clients in Phase II or Phase III or Graduates of either Casa Esperanza Men’s Program or Latinas y Niños Center who are active participants in their treatment plan.
  • Residents of any of Casa Esperanza, Inc.’s Supportive Housing units including Nueva Vida, Nueva Esperanza, Dunmore Place, 300 Eustis Street who have at least 3 months of sobriety and are actively engaged in their recovery.
  • Clients of Familias Unidas Outpatient Services who have at least 3 months of sobriety and are actively engaged in their recovery.
