Looking back, SHC’s motto for 2023 might be best summed up as “we’ll find a way.”
Despite growing need and numerous other challenges, we advanced policy and practice to help children and youth overcome homelessness through education, from prenatal through postsecondary.
In this year-in-review, you’ll find a summary of the major issues we tackled in 2023, the progress we made, and our list of the most widely accessed and popular SHC resources in 2023, based on user analytics.
We hope you’ll be reminded of what we all accomplished — together — despite often overwhelming circumstances. We also hope you’ll discover useful tools and resources that you may have missed, and that you’ll find hope and inspiration in the words of our Youth Leadership & Scholarship scholars.
In 2023, our small but mighty team became less small, and more mighty: we welcomed six new team members to better meet the growing needs of children, youth, and families experiencing homelessness.
We invite you to join us in building on this year’s accomplishments through a donation to SchoolHouse Connection. From December 1-December 31st, 100% of donations will support our YLS scholars, and will be matched by an anonymous donor, up to $5,000.
We thank you for your partnership. We wish you joyous holidays, and we look forward to continuing our collective work in 2024.
The SchoolHouse Connection Team
