If your family’s living situation has changed and you are currently living in a shelter, motel, campground, car, abandoned building, park, or are otherwise homeless due to a loss of housing or economic hardship, your school-age children may qualify for certain rights and protections under the federal McKinney-Vento Act.

If you believe your children may be eligible, contact Shannon Vanderpool, at svanderpool@lpatucson.org, to find out what services and support may be available.
