Student homelessness is something that stays hidden and is often overlooked. We had a drop in center set up that was exceedingly helpful for students once they got over the stigma associated with it.
When I got that call, I realized how in the dark I was about services I was aware of to help my student. I didn’t know where she could stay, I didn’t know who could help, I didn’t know how she was going to be able to care for herself and her infant.
Luckily, she had the sister of her child’s father that was willing to take her in temporarily, but it was just that, luck.
How any more of our students are in the same situation but don’t get a helping hand? How many are on the streets and are cold at night? How many are missing meals, showers, and basic human affection? The answer is way too many, but until one of yours comes to you with a problem you aren’t equipped to solve, you don’t realize it.
