Support Higher Education Access for Homeless and Foster Youth

Postsecondary attainment is increasingly necessary to move out of poverty and homelessness and live a healthy, productive life. Yet youth experiencing homelessness face barriers in transitioning from secondary to postsecondary education, as well as barriers to financial aid, college retention, and college completion. 

A series of bills have been introduced in Congress to help eliminate barriers to higher education homeless and foster youth, including:

  • The Higher Education Access and Success for Homeless and Foster Youth
  • The Fostering Success in Higher Education Act
  • The Helping Foster and Homeless Youth Achieve Act
  • The Fostering Postsecondary Success for Homeless and Foster Youth

Contact your Members of Congress today to urge them to sign on as a cosponsors of these pieces of legislation, which bring homeless and foster youth closer to attaining economic independence and long-term stability.
