The mission of Duluth’s Schools Families in Transition Program is to prevent students who are experiencing homelessness from losing ground academically and to provide them with support to navigate the area services available to them.
On average our school district has 400+ homeless students at a time. We strive to provide support and choices that promote healthy attachments between these kids, their school and community.
The program accomplishes this by facilitating support of enrollment, attendance and focusing on academic success of homeless preschool and school-aged children.
These students may not be who you’d expect. Some are captains of our sports teams, academically gifted or students that just want to learn. Each has their own story which comes from circumstances out of their control.
Our goal is to provide resources to help in their transition that include items like:
1. Bus passes
2. Grocery Gift Cards
With the support of our community we can help more children grow academically and provide a little more stability during their time of need. We appreciate your consideration and donations!
