Homeless and Foster Youth

We help students and families in transition with enrollment, staying in school of origin, access to educational and transition services, transportation services (when appropriate), and with referrals to community resources.


The McKinney-Vento Homeless Education Assistance Act defines homeless children and youth as individuals who lack a fixed, regular, and adequate nighttime residence, including those who:

  • Share housing with other persons due to loss of housing, economic hardship, or a similar reason (sometimes referred to as doubled up).
  • Live in motels, hotels, emergency or transitional shelters, campgrounds, or trailer parks.
  • Live in a car, park, abandoned building, substandard housing, or other place not designed as a regular living accommodation.
  • Are unaccompanied youth or youth abandoned in hospital or awaiting foster placement.
  • Migrant children living in circumstances described above.
