Homeless/Living in Transition:  What does it mean?

* Someone who doesn't have a "fixed, regular, or adequate place to live", including crowding too many people in one apartment.

* Someone who is spendin the night in a place not meant for sleeping (like a car or condemned building).

* Someone who is staying at a temporary living place, such as a shelter or welfare hotel.

If you don't know where you are going to live next, keeping your child in the same school for the school year may be the best thing you can do for your child's education and emotional security.

Contact ESD for help to keep your child in school.
