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

The National Association for the Education of Homeless Children and Youth is an outstanding nonprofit agency that conducts important work. The agency's ongoing work includes ensuring that the educational rights of homeless children and youth are known and protected. They also administer the LeTendre Education Fund, which provides scholarships for higher education for homeless or formerly homeless youth. I have no doubt that, were it not for NAEHCY's important work in shaping and supporting the national dialogue in this area, the field of homeless education would not have progressed to its current position, providing vital support to vulnerable students.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

contributing to the amazing work being done on behalf of homeless children and youth.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

provide additional higher education scholarships for homeless or formerly homeless youth through its LeTendre Education Fund.
