McKinney-Vento Homeless Assistance Act

Are you currently experiencing temporary living arrangements due to eviction, job loss, or a traumatic event? Laveen Elementary School District offers services to families through the federal McKinney-Vento Homeless Assistance Act. The act requires that children and families who are in a temporary living situation be offered services and supports such as enrollment assistance, nutrition services, clothing or school supplies, community referrals, and in some cases, transportation.

If you are living in any of the following temporary circumstances, you may fit the criteria for assistance under this act which includes:

  • Living with another family or friend due to financial hardship
  • Living in a shelter, transitional housing, in a hotel/motel
  • An unaccompanied youth in foster care
