Youth Who Are Homeless or Displaced
The Education Project
Did you know Livingston County has over 500 students per year considered homeless? On average, 80 students are considered unaccompanied. This means 16% of our homeless students do not live with a parent/guardian.
We serve students and their families living in motels or staying with friends and family due to loss of housing. We also work with students in temporary foster care placements.
Transportation, free or reduced lunch, and school supplies are available for students, as well as clothing, financial assistance, and other support so they can participate in sports and extracurricular activities with their peers.
We are funded primarily through the federal McKinney-Vento Homeless Assistance Act, which guarantees that students who are homeless have equal access to the same free and appropriate public education provided to others. We also rely on private donations and grants to directly meet student needs.
