ESPERANZA HOMELESS CHILDREN AND YOUTH PROGRAM

 
General Information
Description of ProgramServes migrant eligible children and youth ages 3 – 22 that are also affected by homelessness in the Long Island – Metro region. Students that meet the NYSED – MEP criteria as “Priority for Service” (PFS) are considered to be at higher risk for needing assistance, and will be assigned a greater level of support through this funding source. These students are provided with additional advocacy, school supplies, emergency assistance such as food and clothing if needed, as well as supplemental educational support. Services are designed to support students and school districts in providing access and assistance to homeless, migrant students, and to remove the additional barriers to education that they experience due to their lack of stable housing. These services are available to families meeting the traditional migrant eligibility, as well as the criteria for homelessness, as stated in the McKinney-Vento Homeless Children and Youth Act, and are provided at no charge to families or school districts. Call for more detailed information.
