As part of the federal McKinney-Vento Act, Homeless is defined as not having a "fixed, regular, adequate nighttime residence." Homeless students are entitled to the same access to education as those in stable homes. We are their advocate and support ensuring they have the technology, clothing, transportation and other essential resources to assist them in obtaining their education.
THE GRACE PROGRAM
Through our RRWES GRACE Program we provide Mentoring/Advocacy, Financial Assistance and Support to Homeless Parents and those transitioning to stable housing. We assist with application completion, access to resources, and a Life Map to guide them to living a better quality of life. Grace Program participants are by referrals only.
THE KINDNESS PROGRAM
The Kindness Program provides emergency funds to families, who just need a Helping Hand due to a temporary financial hardship. A one-time grant per 12-month period will be provided to Parents who may need assistance with a utility bill, small car repair, cell phone restoration, etc. Funds are limited and will be disbursed on a first come first serve basis as funds are available. Women also have the opportunity to be Mentored.
Recipients for the Kindness Program are on a referral basis.
