McKinney-Vento Services

Senior Social Workers assist homeless youth and their families in removing obstacles and barriers that hinder the achievement of their academic and personal goals. Through the McKinney Vento Education Act, Social Workers provide case management, basic needs resources, community-based referrals and advocacy for students and their families as well as collaboration and training to school personnel. These services are designed to meet the holistic needs of students and families.
