I am a Young Person Experiencing Homelessness

If you are a young person experiencing homelessness we can help you navigate the process of planning and paying for college. Homelessness or being at risk of being homeless can be any of the following situations:

  • Sharing the housing of others due to loss of housing, economic hardship, or a similar reason; or
  • Staying in motels, trailer parks, or campgrounds due to the lack of an adequate alternative; or
  • Staying in shelters or transitional housing; or
  • Sleeping in cars, parks, abandoned buildings, substandard housing, or similar settings.
