Every child has the right to an education! If, due to a loss of housing, you must live in a shelter, motel, vechicle, or campground; on the street; in abandoned buildings; or doubled-up with relatives or friends; then we can help remove barriers that could exclude your child from receiving the maximum education that they deserved. Pelase contact our Homeless Liasison for further questions for assistance.
