McKinney-Vento "Families Living in Transition" Program

  • Individuals who lack a fixed, regular, and adequate nighttime residence are considered to be living in transition.  The program includes school-age children who have a nighttime residence that is: shared with another family, a shelter, motel or hotel, transitional housing, trailer park, campground, makeshift arrangements in someone's home or a place not designed for human accommodations.
