FOCUS on Housing
Objectives of Pilot
When we launched the pilot in January 2018, we proposed three objectives:
Improve the identification of vulnerable students and families in schools.
Prioritize families according to need and match them to housing opportunities in the community.
Provide two-generation support to both students and their caregivers.
While FLSP partner organizations are collectively targeting seven schools for this initiative, Higher Ground currently serves and is partnering with four of the seven schools in Roxbury and Dorchester: Higginson Elementary School, Higginson-Lewis K-8 School, David A. Ellis Elementary School, and the William Monroe Trotter K-8 School.
We have established strong partnerships with the principals, staff and various organizations to help identify and house families experiencing homelessness. We continue to work towards identifying students in the schools and connecting their families to housing resources.
House all homeless families and students in 7 target schools by end of 2019-2020 School Year
As of April 2020, 121 families housed with 198 students in 7 target schools,
which represents about 71% of homeless students in 7 target schools
