In 2019, in the state of Iowa there 7,295 homeless students enrolled in the Iowa public school systems! Often times we only think of homelessness impact an adults education but statistics show that homelessness can greatly impact a child's education as well. 

Homelessness has a devastating impact on homeless children and youth’s educational opportunities. From residency requirements, guardianship requirements, delays in transfer of school records, lack of transportation, and lack of immunization records often prevent homeless children from enrolling in school. Homeless children and youth who are able to enroll in school still face barriers to regular attendance: while 87% of homeless youth are enrolled in school, only 77% attend school regularly (U.S. Department of Education, 2004).

That is where we come in to help! Our Women and Children's shelter offers a place of consistency, safety and a soft place to land for mothers with children. We help get the students enrolled, provide transportation, as well as help secure other resources and needs. But these services are not just limited to women and children, anyone who is need or desire to further their education are welcome to tap into our resources!
