Family School Liaison

Family advocates are available to help all students and their families get connected with resources within the school and community. We believe that students learn best when their family’s basic needs (such as shelter, food, etc.) are met.

  • Access to our District food and hygiene pantry, and other District financial resources

  • Support navigating community resources, including housing, healthcare, emergency financial help, food pantries, employment, DHS benefits, and more.

  • Free school clothing

  • School-sponsored sports fees

  • Connecting with counseling and therapeutic support services

  • Financial help for after-school activities

Youth Experiencing Homelessness

If you and your family are:

  • Living with friends or family due to loss of housing or financial hardship

  • Living in a motel, vehicle, campground, or on the street due to a lack of alternative adequate accommodations

  • Living in an emergency shelter or transitional housing

  • Living in housing without electricity, running water, or other basic needs, or

  • A youth living in one of these situations without your parent or guardian

In addition to the family support services listed above, we can help you with:

  • Enroll in school immediately, even if you are missing documents normally required for enrollment (birth certificate, vaccine record, etc.)

  • Choosing between the local school where you are living or the school last attended before losing housing, when feasible

  • Receiving transportation to and from school, and school events

  • Enrolling automatically in the free lunch program
