We would like to give a shout out to Edmonds School District employees that support our McKinney Vento families. We are proud and so thankful to be part of a team that works to help our homeless kids feel safe, secure and part of this community. We provide support to case managers that develop plans to help families help themselves. this method is designed as a long term fix, one small step at a time. this school year we provided:
Over 300 nights in local hotels for families experiencing immediate homelessness.
32,000 small bags of food
Emergency closets filled with toiletries, hygiene products, socks underwear, sweatpants, jackets and shoes.
13 families with utility support
8 families with deposits and furniture so they could move into a home of their own.
Gift cards and Orca cards for transportation.
Birthday Parties for McKinney Vento students.
Christmas support for families unable to attend local programs.
A resource fair (Valentine Smiles) providing community services, school supplies and family portraits.
With your help, we are making a difference, Kids are better able to focus on school when they are not stressed by where they will sleep, what they will wear or what they will eat.
With your support, we can continue our programs.
