McKinney Vento Family Resources

Families in Transition

This program provides assistance to families meeting criteria for the McKinney-Vento Act implemented to ensure all students the right to an education regardless of their living situation. 

The term “homeless children and youth” is defined as individuals who lack a fixed, regular, and adequate nighttime residence.  This includes children and youth who are:

  • Sharing the housing of others due to loss of housing or economic hardship

  • Living in motels, hotels, trailer parks, campgrounds, or similar settings

  • Living in emergency or transitional housing

  • Living in cars, parks, public spaces, abandoned buildings, or substandard housing

Our department staff work in collaboration with campus staff and other departments to facilitate student access to:

  • Nutrition Services

  • Enrollment (Immediately)

  • Transportation Assistance (School of Origin)

  • Student Case Management

  • School-Wide Programs

  • Transition Planning
