Homeless Assistance

MCKINNEY-VENTO ACT
In Indiana, over 29,000 children experience homelessness each year. The McKinney-Vento Homeless
Assistance Act was created with the goal of ensuring the enrollment, attendance, and success of
homeless children and youth in school.

WHO IS HOMELESS?
Children who lack a fixed, regular, and adequate nighttime residence:
  • "Double up" - Sharing the housing of others due to the loss of housing, economic hardship, or similar reasons.
  • Living in motels, hotels, trailer parks, camping grounds, due to lack of adequate alternative accommodations.
  • Living in emergency or transitional shelters.
  • Living in a public or private place not designed for humans to live.
  • Migratory children living in above circumstances.
  • Living in cars, parks, abandoned buildings, substandard housing, bus or train stations, or similar settings.
  • Unaccompanied Youth - Children or youth who meets the definition of homeless and not in the physical custody of a parent or guardian.
RESIDENCY AND EDUCATIONAL RIGHTS
Students who are in temporary, inadequate and homeless living situations have the following rights:
  • Immediate enrollment in the school they last attended or the school in whose attendance area they are currently staying even if they do not have all of the documents normally required at the time of enrollment;
  • Access to free meals and textbooks, Title I and other educational programs and other comparable services including transportation;
  • Attendance in the same classes and activities that students in other living situations also participate in without fear of being separated or treated differently due to their housing situations.
