Homeless Family Resources

Resources for families experiencing homelessness in Metro Schools

A family may qualify for our program if they lack a fixed, regular or adequate night-time residence.

If you live in a shelter, or transitional housing program, or if you couch surf with friends or family because you do not have a permanent address; or if you live in a motel or campground because you cannot find or afford housing or live in a car, abandoned building or a place not normally designed for sleeping, we are here to help. 

How We can Support you

We’re committed to helping every Metro Schools family be successful regardless of where they live at the moment.

Because students experiencing homelessness may face many obstacles to an appropriate education, such as lack of transportation and resources, frequent school changes, loss of school records, and emotional stress, special assistance is provided by the district to support these students.
