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.
In May, we hosted Part 1 of this conversation, which covered how housing instability impacts student outcomes, how the education system is uniquely suited to address student homelessness, key policies and practices being implemented across the country, and examples of what funders and communities are doing across the country. To view the recording of this conversation, visit the webinar recording page.
Now, Funders Together to End Homelessness invites you to join Part 2 of this series, to hear more about how you can support students experiencing homelessness.
