Across the country, student homelessness is rising. Despite increasing numbers, these students – as well as the school liaisons and state coordinators who support them – report that student homelessness remains an invisible and extremely disruptive problem. Whether students experience homelessness with their families or alone, for a week or a year, the experience is extremely damaging to their ability to stay in school and on track.
