There are over 1.3 million homeless kids in the United States
20% do not attend school, and of those that do, 57% do not attend school regularly
There are many reasons why homeless kids have difficulty succeeding in school
issues with transportation, study conditions, parent's involvement, lack of school supplies, and developmental delays.
You Can Help
Tutor one of our kids in a one-on-one setting
Volunteer tutors meet with one child that they are paired with once per week for 2-3 hours each time for at least one school year. Tutors pick the child up at the child's location and take them somewhere to study, such as the library.
Youth LIFT Kids have increased attendance, improved grades, and greater self-esteem than before starting our program.
