Consulting Services

SchoolHouse Connection is the nation’s leading expert on the early care and education of children and youth experiencing homelessness. With 25 years of experience, we are highly sought after for our expertise and impactful advocacy efforts. Our staff helped craft the McKinney-Vento Act through amendments by the No Child Left Behind Act and the Every Student Succeeds Act. We have spent decades listening and learning about the best, evidence-based practices to implement it. We also work at the intersections between homelessness and privacy, disabilities, discipline, resilience, and immigration status. We are experts on financial aid policies for unaccompanied youth and how early childhood programs can best serve families experiencing homelessness.
