If your family is experiencing a loss of housing during this unprecedented time, we can help.
Definition of Homelessness under the McKinney-Vento Homeless Assistance Act:
The McKinney-Vento Homeless Assistance Act defines homeless children and youths as those who lack a fixed, regular, and adequate nighttime residence. The law provides several examples of situations that meet the definition. This includes children and youths:
  • sharing housing due to a loss of housing, economic hardship, or a similar reason;
  • living in hotels, motels, trailer parks, or camping grounds due to a lack of alternative adequate housing;
  • living in emergency or transitional shelters;
  • abandoned in hospitals;
  • living in a public or private place not designated for, or normally used as, a regular sleeping accommodation for human beings;
  • living in cars, parks, public spaces, abandoned buildings, substandard housing, bus or train stations, or similar places.
If any of these match your current living situations, please contact our Homelessness liaison, Caitlin Olson at or contact any of our school buildings to get in contact with her.
