Children are the fastest-growing sector of the homeless population. Of the estimated 15,000 homeless people in San Francisco County, approximately 4,050 of those are children. This report, coordinated by A Home Away from Homelessness and sponsored by the Charles and Helen Schwab Foundation, provides a three-year plan to ensure that these homeless children are connected with available resources and that they have equal access to academic success. The goal of the report is to support systems change in the school district so that the barriers to academic achievement homeless children are now experiencing can be eliminated.
