Homeless Services - Transition Education Program (TEP)
Our Goal is to reduce barriers to school enrollment and achievement so that children from families who are experiencing homelessness have a "full and equal opportunity" to succeed in school. Services include, but are not limited to advocacy, transportation, school supplies, resource and staff development, community education about homelessness and mobility and coordination with community partners.
Did you know that on average, it takes 4-6 months to recover academic progress from each school change? *
