    Families who, due to a loss of housing, live:

    •In a shelter, motel, vehicle, or campground
    •On the street

    •Decide which school would be best for the child
    •Communicate with the school
    •Provide school supplies, uniforms, supplemental services and free school meals
    •Set up transportation to and from the school of origin
    •Find community support
