Homeless and Foster Care Services
We provide educational services for students that are homeless and children and youth who are part of the Foster Care system. Students that are homeless are identified by the federal McKinney-Vento homeless law as those who, as part of a family or living alone, lack a fixed, safe, stable and adequate housing such as living in cars, motels, shelters, someone else’s home, transitional housing or similar settings.
For more information please contact: Ligia Calvo and Hortensia Nunez Rodriguez, McKinney-Vento and Foster Care Coordinators, (425) 456-4287
