Title I HOPE: Homeless Outreach Program For Education

 

Mission Statement

The Title I Homeless Outreach Program for Education (HOPE) of the Clark County School District works to remove barriers for homeless students to enroll in school and educate school personnel, parents, and unaccompanied youth of the educational options under the McKinney-Vento federal law.

 

Homeless students are those who lack a fixed, regular, and adequate nighttime residence, which includes the following:

  • Living with friends or relatives due to loss of housing, economic hardship, or a similar reason;
  • Living in a hotel or motel due to lack of alternative accommodations;
  • Living in an emergency or transitional shelter;
  • Living in a car, park, on the street, or similar settings.

 

Student services include:

  • Immediate enrollment in school
  • Free school breakfast and lunch
  • Backpacks with school supplies and toiletries
  • Transportation to school of origin
  • Emergency clothing
  • Assistance with cap and gowns and summer school tuition grants
