Homeless Services

Congress passed the McKinney-Vento Homeless Assistance Act in 1987 to help support the needs of homeless youth in schools.  Under this guidance, homeless is defined as any child or youth without a fixed, regular, and adequate nighttime residence.  This includes students in the following situations:

  • Living with a friend, relative, or someone else because they lost their home or their family is having temporary financial problems.
  • Staying in a motel, hotel, trailer park, or campground because they have nowhere else to go.
  • Living in a shelter, including emergency or transitional shelters, domestic violence shelters, and runaway and homeless youth shelters.
  • Staying in substandard housing.
  • Living in places not ordinarily used for sleeping including cars, parks, public places, abandoned buildings, or bus or train stations.
  • Awaiting foster care placement.
  • Abandoned in a hospital.

If you need assistance, please contact our Homeless Liaison, Ms. Jan Fix, at 586.510.2040 or [email protected].
