McKinney-Vento Homelessness Assistance Act
Even if you lack a permanent residence, your children can receive help to stay in their home school district. Please contact Ms. Cramphorn at 267-514-1823 x222 or email@example.com with any questions or with an assistance request.
The McKinney-Vento Homelessness 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 nonpermanent structure.
