The Project R.E.A.C.H. Program is designed to help students who are experiencing housing transition issues with school related services, as well as collaborating with Community Partners to offer assistance with issues outside of the school environment.
How can you help?

Every child has the right to an education.
The Federal McKinney-Vento Homeless Assistance Act states that children and youth who lack a fixed, regular, and adequate nighttime residence are considered homeless.
Under McKinney-Vento, children (PreK-12) have the right to:
Continue to attend the school they last attended before they lost their housing (school of origin), if that is the parent/guardian’s choice and is in the child’s best interest, or the school which is zoned for their temporary residence.
