Every child deserves school stability.

Even if you lack a permanent residence, your children can receive help to stay in their home school district. The McKinney-Vento Homeless Assistance Act can help provide school stability for your child if you do not have a permanent home and are:

  • Staying with friends or family because you lost housing.
  • Living in a shelter, including transitional programs.
  • Staying in motels because you cannot get your own home.
  • Living on the streets, in a car, van, tent or other non-permanent structure.
