Unhoused/Families in Transition (McKinney-Vento)
Our team assists families and children by providing essential educational supports. The primary objective is to remove educational barriers for children experiencing housing instability to ensure they have a successful school experience.
Contact us for assistance with:
- school enrollment and advocacy
- backpack/school supplies
- school fees
- school transportation
- community resources for emergency assistance
The school district is not able to pay rent, provide eviction assistance or motel vouchers. We have gathered many great community emergency resources, and listed them in the Resources for Families booklet. Included are resources for assistance with housing, health care, food banks, clothing banks, employment, child care and many emergency related services.
