The National Council of Local Human Service Administrators (Local Council) is a partner in the American Public Human Services Association’s family that works to exert a positive influence on the development of national policies and programs affecting local public human service administration and to promote the professional interests, competence and leadership of the local public human service administrators in the United States. The Local Council is coordinated by a Local Council Executive Committee (EC) made up of 12 – 15 highly active Local members. A Chair for the Local EC is elected on an annual basis and serves as a member of the APHSA Executive Governing Board. EC members participate across APHSA’s efforts through appointment on the Affiliates President’s Council, Leadership Council, and association wide initiatives, such as the National Collaborative. See the Local EC’s Work Structure for the names of current Local EC members and their assignments to APHSA Councils.

Gage East Apartments, which is currently under construction, will provide 55 units of permanent supportive housing to two homeless populations in Rochester. Thirty multi-bedroom apartments will be available for high barrier homeless families who have experienced multiple episodes of homelessness, have difficult criminal and rental backgrounds and struggle with mental and physical health issues. Twenty-five efficiency units will provide housing for homeless youth 16 - 22 years old. In addition to providing housing, intensive supportive services will be available for each person living in the facility. This project is designed to address two generations at one time and work to interrupt the generational homeless issue that many families experience today. Supportive services include on site case management, transportation, emergency supports, 24 hour front desk staff, early childhood and school aged youth programming, work force development and advocacy and referral to area programs. Adjacent to the Gage East Apartments will be the Empowerment Center that will offer additional programs and supportive services that will be available to all of the residents.
