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
