Help for Homeless Children and Youth


Ojai Unified School District has resources and a commitment to help. We need to know who are our homeless children and youth, so we can assess their need and make sure they get the appropriate help. You can help with the identification process.

How to identify: Under the McKinney Vento Homeless Act, the definition of “homeless" may include any of the following: 

· Staying temporarily with relatives or friends

· Staying at campgrounds or in their car due to a lack of alternative adequate accommodations

· Living in motels

· Living with another family temporarily

· Moved several times in a year

· Living in emergency or transitional shelters

· Awaiting foster care placement
