FIVE WAYS TO HELP HOMELESS AND FOSTER YOUTH DURING ACADEMIC BREAKS
Most students experiencing homelessness and students from foster care don’t have families to return to during academic breaks. Instead of enjoying the warmth of home and family, they scramble for a place to stay, often hiding their situation due to embarrassment. The fear of homelessness during breaks creates tremendous stress, preventing students from focusing on schoolwork. Be part of the solution by helping your community develop a plan for assisting these vulnerable young people to have safe, stable housing over breaks.
