Children & Youth Experiencing Homelessness

Homelessness is not something that has to affect your child’s education. Even if you lack a permanent residence, your children can receive help to stay in their home school district.

 

The McKinney-Vento Homeless Assistance Act is a law that helps your child if you do not have a permanent home to stay in by providing school stability for your child. This Act is support for those who are without a permanent residence and are:

  • Staying with friends or family because you lost housing.
  • Living in a shelter, including transitional programs.
  • Staying in motels because you cannot get your own home.
  • Living on the streets, in a car, van, tent or other nonpermanent structure.
