Homeless Education

Homeless Education

The term "homeless children and youth" refers to individuals who lack a fixed, regular, and adequate nighttime residence. Subtitle Vii-B of the McKinney Vento Homeless Assistance Act defines homeless as follows:
  • Children and youths who are sharing the housing of other persons due to loss of housing, economic hardship, or a similar reason; are living in motels, hotels, trailer parks, or camping grounds due to the lack of alternative accommodations; are living in emergency or transitional shelters; are abandoned in hospitals; or are awaiting foster placement
  • Children and youths who have a primary nighttime residence that is a public or private place not designed for or ordinarily used as a regular sleeping accommodation for human beings
  • Children and youth who are living in cars, parks, public spaces, abandoned buildings, substandard housing, bus or train stations, or similar settings
  • Migratory children who qualify as homeless for the purposes of this subtitle because the children are living in circumstances described above
