Hunger and Homelessness Awareness

 

Homelessness is real for many students in our community.

Have you ever wondered what it might be like to walk in the shoes of a student experiencing homelessness? It takes perseverance, determination, hope and a community to reach your goals! The hopes and dreams of our students should not be limited by where they rest their head at night. Experiencing homeless can take many forms and each situation is unique.
