For the more than 140,000 students in New York City who have been homeless, the impact of housing instability is all too real. These children are not only struggling with maintaining a place to sleep, but also attending school, succeeding academically, and accessing supports for their additional educational and behavioral needs. The 2017 Atlas of Student Homelessness in New York City provides an in-depth look at the educational outcomes of homeless students.
Join us for a breakfast conversation with leaders in the field and the launch of our latest publication, On the Map: The Dynamics of Family Homelessness in New York City.
This interactive map focuses on homeless families in NYC who have children currently enrolled in the pubic school system. The map allows readers to visualize the amount of students in every public school in the city who do not have a stable residency.
