Wildfires are devastating communities across California, causing more than 300,000 people to evacuate their homes and threatening many more. The Camp Fire in Northern California -- one of three blazing across the state -- is the most destructive in state history. We want to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you find access to shelter. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know the most effective ways to contribute.
To remove barriers to education for children and youth experiencing homelessness.
Faces without Places (FwP) provides educational and enrichment programming, school transportation and supplies, and other specialized services to thousands of children and youth experiencing homelessness each year in Greater Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky.
Believing education to be the key to breaking the cycle of homelessness and poverty, FwP’s primary goal is to provide school stability for the approximately 6,000 children experiencing homelessness each year in Greater Cincinnati. Although there are other social services that provide resources for families experiencing homelessness to obtain food, shelter, work, and childcare, we are the only local non-profit that focuses exclusively on the educational needs of children experiencing homelessness.
