In cooperation with local Lapeer County school districts we can assist parents and their families while they are temporarily between homes.

Educational Services available:

  • Assistance with enrollment in school and transfer of student records.

  • Liaison between family and school personnel

  • Assistance with school transportation

  • School supplies and backpacks

  • Referrals to community agencies for food, medical, dental
    and optical care

  • Assistance with student clothing and/or shoes.

A student is considered to be "homeless" if, due to a lack of housing they must reside in a shelter, motel, vehicle or campground, on the street, in abandoned buildings or doubled-up with relatives or friends due to economic hardship or eviction. A student can become homeless due to a house fire or other natural disaster resulting in a temporary or permanent loss of their home.
