Revised February 2014
This guidebook aims to help educators improve the identification, enrollment, and services to homeless children in Washington. The future of homeless children is highly dependent on their educational success; therefore, it is our responsibility and great privilege to help them succeed.
Amanda is a character created for this guidebook. Although fictional, her letters very much reflect the lives and realities of children experiencing homelessness. We hope this manual will both inspire and assist you in serving some of the most vulnerable children in our state.
