Homeless Services

The Elizabethtown Area School District's support services department seeks to remove barriers to learning and ensure educational success for all students. When students and their families do not have a fixed, permanent, or regular nighttime residence, they are considered to be a family experiencing homelessness under the federal McKinney-Vento Act. School districts are required to identify students that fall under the set criteria of McKinney-Vento. For students not residing with a legal parent or guardian, these individuals are classified as Unaccompanied Youth, and have equal educational rights under McKinney-Vento. Supports are available to students and families in relation to enrollment, transportation, referrals to community resource partners (for physical, emotional, and basic needs), opportunities for family engagement in school-related events, maintaining academic/graduation progress, or other individualized barriers.

If you or a family you know is experiencing homelessness, please contact Dr. Jennifer Fields, EASD Homeless Liaison, at (717) 367-1533, ext. 21108 or
