NAEHCY is the ultimate advocate for our nations most vulnerable...homeless children. The liaisons working at the district level work tirelessly to provide the most resources to children struggling to live day to day. Their work is non-stop and critical to the futures of more than 1.5 million children. In short, they are our heroes!
