HELP FOR HOMELESS AND FOSTER YOUTH, IN CRISIS YOUTH AND FAMILIES

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.

If you or a family member is faced with:

  • 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

 Please contact Linda Jordan, OUSD Homeless and Foster Youth Liaison, at  (805)640-4300 x 1067 or ljordan@ojaiusd.org.
