The McKinney-Vento Homeless Assistance Act, a provision No Child Left Behind, is the federal law that entitles children who are homeless to a free, appropriate public education, and requires schools to remove barriers to their enrollment, attendance, and success in school.
Children who qualify for homeless status are fully integrated and not segregated/separated from their housed peers for academic instruction.
We may be able to help if you or your family live in any of the following situations:
  • Living with a friend, relative, or someone else
  • Staying in a motel or hotel
  • Living in an emergency or transitional shelter or a domestic violence shelter
  • Staying in sub-standard housing
  • Living in a car, park, public place, abandoned building, or a bus/train station
  • Living in a campground or an inadequate trailer home
  • Abandoned in a hospital
  • Living in a runaway or homeless youth shelter
