Homeless Assistance (McKinney-Vento)

Children experiencing homelessness face great challenges. High mobility, precarious living conditions, and poverty combine to present significant educational, health and emotional difficulties. Homeless children are truly among our nation's neediest and most at risk. The Illinois State Board of Education considers the school enrollment, attendance and success of homeless children and youth throughout Illinois as a high priority.
