Joshua Rios
Pronoun Preference:  He/His

Joshua is a representative of the population we seek to serve.  He is young, has been homeless, has received services in Knoxville, and has lived experiences that will be invaluable to the board as we make decisions for a population that board members must understand in order to provide quality care.  He serves in a leadership capacity with the Youth Advisory Board as they seek to educate, advocate for and support youth in danger of being harmed, neglected or falling through the cracks of an “inadequate system” to promote the health and well-being of unaccompanied youth.
