PA Education for Children and Youth Experiencing Homelessness Program
Life is uncertain, but your child’s education doesn’t have to be.
The McKinney-Vento Homeless Assistance Act can help provide school stability for your child if you do not have a permanent home and are:
Staying with friends or family because you lost housing
Living in a shelter, including transitional programs
Staying in motels because you cannot get your own home
Living on the streets, in a car, van, tent or other nonpermanent structure.
Even if you lack a permanent residence, your children can receive help to stay in their home school district.
Privacy is of the upmost importance. Our intentions are to confidentially assist families in connecting with resources available through United School District and the Children and Youth Experiencing Homelessness Program of Indiana County. Students who meet the guidelines of homelessness are eligible to receive free meals at school. In addition, there are resources available in Indiana County to help support them.
If you are homeless, or are a family in transition, and the above applies to your children, please contact your child’s guidance office:
