HOMELESS EDUCATION

 

A homeless individual is someone who lacks a fixed, regular and adequate nighttime residence.  This includes anyone who, due to a lack of housing, lives:

§  In emergency or transitional shelters

§  In motels, hotels, trailer parks, campgrounds, abandoned in hospitals,

§  Awaiting foster care

§  In cars, parks, public places, bus or train stations

§  Doubled up with relatives or friends because of economic need

§  Migratory children living in these conditions

Homeless students face multiple challenges and barriers to succeed in school.  The Education for Homeless Children and Youth Program provides resources and technical assistance to ensure homeless students are enrolled in school and have the support and resources necessary for success.  If you have questions related to the education of Homeless children and youth, or would like additional information please contact:
