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 students experiencing homelessness, to enroll in school and educate school personnel, parents, and unaccompanied youth of the educational options under McKinney-Vento Federal Law.


Students experiencing homelessness 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
    • Should a student become homeless, at parental request, the student is entitled to receive transportation to his or her school of origin or last school attended, if the school is two miles or more from the student’s current address
  • Emergency clothing
    • CCSD, in partnership with the Assistance League of Las Vegas, provide clothing to students once a year
    • Operation School Bell is available to elementary and middle school students on a referral basis
  • Assistance with summer school tuition grants
