Homeless Families and Youth

Are you or your family living in a homeless situation?

The McKinney-Vento Act defines homeless children and youth as individuals who lack a fixed, regular, and adequate nighttime residence.  This includes children and youth who:

  • are staying in a shelter (family shelter, domestic violence shelter, youth shelter)
  • sharing housing with other(s) due to loss of housing, economic hardship, natural disaster, lack of adequate housing, or similar reason
  • living in a car, park, campground, abandoned building, or other inadequate accommodations (example: lacking water or electricity)
  • temporarily living in a motel or hotel due to loss of housing, economic hardship, natural disaster, or similar reason
  • under 18 years old that live on their own without a parent/guardian (runaway or unaccompanied youth)
If you are living in any of these situations, you may be eligible for additional services. Please contact our District Homeless Liaison at the information below.
