Coffee Talk: Discussing Seattle’s Homeless Students

Last year, nearly every Seattle school district saw a rise in student homelessness, resulting in a citywide increase of over 55%. Over 3,600 Seattle public school students, or one out of every 16 children, experienced homelessness during school year 2015–16. That’s why the Institute for Children, Poverty, and Homelessness partnered with Seattle Public Schools to release The Seattle Atlas of Student Homelessness—a launch point for deeper conversations and action to support homeless students moving forward.

On Thursday, December 7th at 10:00 a.m. Pacific Standard Time, grab a coffee and tune into Coffee Talk: Discussing Seattle’s Homeless Students. We will be answering your questions about the Atlas, discussing key aspects of our research, and talking about why we think the issue of student homelessness is so important to Seattle.
