This organization is committed to help children and their families affected by homelessness in the Clark County area. Over 2,200 children are without a fixed address in the Evergreen and Vancouver School districts. Over 3,000 children are without a fixed address in all of Clark County. Families with children experiencing homelessness are put into immediate temporary shelter, children are entered into school, and parents are assisted with permanent long term solutions. This is an established and successful program, but they need help getting the program running here in Clark County and there are many ways to make a difference.
