Homeless Education Services

MISSION STATEMENT
The Mission of the Homeless Education Program is to connect Children, youth, and families experiencing homelessness with educational opportunities and community resources to increase stability and sustain success. 

The Lafayette Parish Homeless Children/Youth Education Program is based on the philosophy that education is the key to overcome and prevent the cycle of homelessness in families. Program activities are based on educational principles and have the common purpose of contributing to the positive physical, emotional, social, and academic growth of each child whose life we touch.

The main components of our project are awareness, enrollment assistance, provision of educational materials, coordination of school and community services and resources and summer programs. Our program is funded through the Stewart B. McKinney Assistance Grant.
