McKinney Vento Homeless Project
The McKinney-Vento Homeless Project provides Region 14 School Districts with education, training and financial assistance for services to homeless and unaccompanied youth.
Identification
Students who live in a "doubled up" situation with friends or family, live in a shelter, in a motel, in a vehicle or inadequate housing are all considered homeless. If a student does not live with a legal guardian that student is also considered an unaccompanied youth. If any of these conditions exist, the student is eligible for McKinney-Vento services. These services include, but are not limited to, transportation to school of origin, free school lunch, immediate enrollment, tutoring services and special consideration when entering a facility of higher education.
Why Are Students Homeless?
Many factors contribute to families and students becoming homeless. Loss of work, financial hardship because of medical bills, addiction, family violence and the economic downturn are all reasons a student may not have a fixed residence.
