WEBINAR: Using Student Homelessness Data to Advocate on Behalf of Children and Families

Tuesday, November 18, 2014
10 a.m. to 11 a.m. PST

If you work on behalf of children and families who are homeless or are at risk of becoming homeless, this one-hour webinar is for you.

The story of California's homeless students is largely a hidden one—many are doubled up with family and friends, while others live in shelters.

New data, however, show the extent of homelessness of California's pre-K-12 students enrolled in public schools. Nearly 270,000 public school students in the state were homeless at some point in the 2012-2013 school year. That equates to about 4% of all California's public school students, double the national average. The data, from the California Homeless Youth Project and available only on, are sorted by county, school district and legislative district. The data include information by grade level and nighttime residence.

In this webinar, you'll learn more about this important new dataset and how to use it in your work.


Who should participate:

Anyone who works on children's issues related to poverty and homelessness: legislative staffers, grant writers, educators, advocates, policy analysts, health providers, consultants, communications professionals and others.
