Community and Family Connections

 

The McKinney-Vento Homeless Assistance Act ensures educational stability for children and youth experiencing housing instability. Students who lack fixed, regular, and adequate nighttime residence qualify for additional support and resources. Unaccompanied Youth, students whose living situation is not fixed, regular or adequate and who are not in the physical custody of a parent or legal guardian, also qualify. Our team of 7 CFC Liaisons work to identify and verify eligibility. They are also trained to assist with Medicaid /CHP enrollment. Educational advocacy, increasing staff awareness and community partnerships increase positive outcomes for students.
