McKinney-Vento Homeless Assistance

Families under the McKinney-Vento Act are in transition due to life experiences and lacking a FIXED, REGULAR, ADEQUATE residence.

The BCSD reduces barriers by providing a safe and stable school environment.  We can assist with:

  • Immediate enrollment
  • Free lunch/backpack program
  • School supplies/fees
  • Transportation
  • Tutoring
  • Hygiene supplies, clothing, shoes, and coats
  • Referrals to community agencies for other identified needs besides housing issues. Butte County does have affordable housing to assist these families in a timely manner.

Twice a year parents are asked to fill out the Student Residency Questionnaire to help identify families that might qualify for assistance through the McKinney-Vento Act. If you have questions about this program or if you need assistance please contact the Butte County School District At-Risk/Homeless Coordinator, Dr. Joel Wilson. (208.690.3421). We are here to help.
