Review for National Association For The Education Of Homeless Children And Youth, Minneapolis, MN, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

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

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.
