Online: On-Demand- Homelessness in Afterschool

December 31, 2021 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

This is an on-demand, self-paced course sponsored by the Pisgah Health Foundation.

It is FREE for all EC educators from Buncombe, Haywood, Henderson, Madison and Transylvania Counties.

Children did not ask to be homeless. They did not create that situation. Some have been born into homelessness. They may live in cars, tents, unoccupied dwellings, or “double-up” with other families. They may have witnessed abuse (or been abused), violence, stealing, someone dying and much more. Children in homelessness may need food, a warm place to sleep, a bath. Above all they need someplace that provides stability and orderliness to their life. Your afterschool program can provide that. Join us to learn about the federal act that helps homeless children and youth stay in school, potential warning signs of homelessness and strategies you can implement in your before/afterschool program immediately to help meet the needs of this population.

Dates: This is a self-paced class. Course is available 7 days a week, 24 hours a day. Work at your own pace, on your own time.
