Support School-Housing Partnerships to Help Homeless Children and Youth

Please take one minute to help school districts, housing authorities and our local communities address the unique needs of children and youth experiencing homelessness.

Homelessness can be a significant barrier to educational success. School districts are uniquely positioned to help prevent and address issues related to child and family homelessness, while housing providers can play a critical role in promoting positive outcomes for children and families by providing stable housing opportunities and other services.

On December 10, 2019, U.S. Senator Patty Murray (D-WA) re-introduced the Affordable Housing for Educational Achievement Demonstration Act of 2019 (the AHEAD Act, S. 3011) to provide funding to help school districts, housing authorities, and community partners to collaborate in unprecedented ways to address children’s education and housing needs in a coordinated fashion.
