HELP Program: Where Tomorrow Begins

 

HELP Program

The HELP Program provides assistance to homeless students and families to remove barriers to education and ensure academic success in school.  Students and families in homeless situations are often confronted with unique challenges to enroll, regularly attend, and succeed in school.  The McKinney-Vento Homeless Assistance Act ensures educational rights and protections for children and youth experiencing homelessness.
