In 1987 Congress established the McKinney Act’s Education of Homeless Children and Youth program in response to reports that only 57% of homeless children were enrolled in school. It established that children and youth who lack a fixed, regular, and adequate residence will be considered homeless and thereby eligible for services.
As an institution we are committed to ensuring the enrollment, attendance and the opportunity to succeed in school for homeless children and youth. We provide technical assistance, guidance, and support to families so their children have equal access to an education, including preschool and transportation assistance. Additionally, we work to put families in touch with homeless resources in the community.
