Homeless Services

The McKinney-Vento Homeless Assistance Act provides schools with guidance regarding how to assist "children and youths" who lack a fixed, regular, and adequate nighttime residence. A student/family that meets the definition of being homeless can be assisted by a District social worker to advise them of District and local resources that may assist the student and family. Every effort is made to help students continue in their school or origin or the school that is in their best interest, including possible transportation arrangements. If a student or family believe they may qualify for homeless services, please contact the school counselor to request assistance or the Palisades School District Homeless Liaison, Lou deFonteny (610-847-5131 ext. 4009; [email protected]).
