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 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.

NEACHY provides valuable information and resources to local public school districts on the status of homelessness in America. It provides ways of connecting with other school districts.

In 1996, when I accepted a school district homeless education liaison position, I had decades of experience in education and social services, but none specific to homelessness. NAEHCY was mentor and support, always accessible and offering guidance, answers, and concrete materials to teach me so I could, in turn, most effectively reach homeless families and, students, school staff and our community. Over fifteen years in that position I have observed that NAEHCY's ability as a dedicated advocate is unparalleled

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Joint work toward convincing my community housing agency to collaborate with the school district so that school district-identified homeless families would be eligible for housing support, an effort which succeeded after an inordinate amount of time.

In my work with families in transition, I often have questions about how to handle situations and how to get the services and other things my families need. Any time I contact NAEHCY, they always have a prompt answer or solution to my problem. These people really know what they're doing and how to help people who are at their most vulnerable.
