Educational Support and Respite Care for Families Experiencing Homelessness
A pilot program introduced last summer was very well received by children and parents. The pandemic illuminated the desperate need for educational support for children as well as free time for parents to search for jobs, inspect apartments, or rest. The program will continue to provide support for students and respite care for parents but will be adapted to meet the needs of the families as they return from hotel to shelters. The goals remain the same: stress reduction for all family members, increased efficiency for parents, and improved school performance for the children. The education specialist will monitor the children’s progress in school and obtain self-reported measures of stress for parents. Service availability will be modified to meet the needs of students since we expect that they will be attending in-school classes during the day.
