Educational Attainment & Homelessness
An overview of Indiana children and youth experiencing homelessness.
Homelessness creates intense challenges and barriers for children and youth, which hinders their ability to find academic, social, and financial success. Children can exhibit various academic or social difficulties that result from the trauma of homelessness, mobility, and the lack of structural consistency and security.
The linked report, published in partnership between Brightlane Learning, formerly School on Wheels, and Indiana Youth Institute with support from Chamberlin Dunn, outlines practical recommendations to identify who is homeless, support those in need, and educate them for future success.
