What We Do

More than 1 million school children become homeless every year. When children are homeless, the stress, trauma, and academic disruptions they experience lead to problems in school. We work to prevent family homelessness and school instability by providing grant funding, conducting best practices research, and offering training to our partners in more than 50 communities across the country.

All are locally designed and managed to leverage community resources and address community needs as effectively as possible.
