Families and Students

Included on this page is an array of resources to help our families find important information and stay engaged in their child's learning. Below are links to some of the most important information you’ll need as you prepare your child for a rewarding educational experience in Cincinnati Public Schools.

Project Connect

Project Connect team is the liaison providing services to students and families experiencing homelessness. This position is mandated through the federal McKinney-Vento Act. This federal act provides advocacy and services to remove educational barriers for children and youth experiencing homelessness. Under this federal definition students qualify for services if they lack a fixed, regular or permanent nighttime residency. This includes those who are: sharing the housing of others due to loss of housing, economic hardship, or a similar reason; staying in motels, trailer parks, or camp grounds due to the lack of an adequate alternative; staying in shelters or transitional housing; or sleeping in cars, parks, abandoned buildings, substandard housing, or similar settings. Project Connect also supports students who are unaccompanied or are not in the care of a custodial parent or guardian. 

The purpose of the McKinney-Vento Homeless Children and Youth Program is to ensure that all children and youth, including preschoolers, have equal access to the same free and appropriate public education as non-homeless children and youth.

Project Connect helps families of students who are experiencing homelessness and can provide assistance with the following: 

  • Enrollment assistance

  • Transportation support

  • Surrogacy services for unaccompanied youth

  • Community resource referrals (shelters, food, benefits, housing) 

  • Connection to academic, social, and emotional support 

  • School supplies, backpacks, uniforms, hygiene items and other necessary items

To refer a student whom you know or suspect is experiencing homelessness, please reach out to me via email or complete this online referral form:

Technology Tools
