I was the former Associate Commissioner of the Family and Youth Services Bureau, which administers Homeless Youth programs for HHS. Over the years NAEHCY has made a concerted effort to support older homeless youth and their educational needs. This is an extremely difficult population to program for because of their transient status and lack of family support. I have been very excited to see this relationship evolve.

NAEHCY works tirelessly to improve access to education for children and youth experiencing homelessness. NAEHCY is the national expert on laws, legislation, policy and practice regarding education for students without housing. It is an invaluable resource to other professionals throughout the country working to improve educational outcomes. Students in homeless situation have a greater chance to succeed due to NAEHCY's dedicated efforts.

I'm a professor of psychology and human development. I am directing the program "My Brothers Keeper" a homeless college student resource center scheduled to open in January 2012. I'm an Army Veteran that needed assistance while I was in college. I'm currently completing the PhD in psychology and noticed as a professor many college students arriving at the campus early to shower in the campus gym and sleeping on benches after I have taught my last course in the evenings. The college has offered funding and a building to house our program! We are currently raising funding to sustain the program while going through the college foundation. What I actually need is current statistical data regarding the amount of homeless college students in the United States and if there is a US initiative in place to address the issue. Our student homeless issue is immediate but we are in search of current data.
Any assistance would be appreciated.

Sincerely,
Professor Carole Toney

NAEHCY is a true great non-profit. It has taken the lead in the nation for the education of homeless children and provides the forum , the information, the network and support for all the professionals in the nation working to see that homeless children's rights under the federal law are upheld. They are available, personal, and consistent over many many years. I have attended 8 of their national conferences and that has been the main support of my work for the 10 years I have been serving homeless children and families.
