Project TEACH Helps Ensure Student Success

Project TEACH promotes the educational success of children experiencing homelessness. The program:

  • informs parents and the community of the educational rights of children under the definition of homeless
  • collaborates with school districts, shelters, and agencies
  • provides services for families staying in and/or attending school in Sacramento County
  • coordinates opportunities for community involvement
  • provides professional development and referral to resources

Is your child missing school because

  • …you move a lot?
  • …you live in a shelter or motel?
  • …you are on the street or homeless?
  • …you don't have a permanent address?

Project TEACH, at the Sacramento County Office of Education (SCOE), can help! Free help to keep your child in school, plus assistance with transportation, school supplies, and more.


Project TEACH is funded thanks to grants from the California Department of Education (CDE), through the McKinney-Vento Homeless Education Assistance Improvements Act of 2001. CDE also provides homeless youth-related resources on its website.
