When Students are Homeless Video:school ties

“When Students Are Homeless” is a
15-minute professionally produced video that explores the challenges faced by children and youth experiencing homelessness and gives voice to this growing population of young people.

This inspiring video is an excellent resource and training tool for schools, agencies, and community groups. The video has been reduced in size to be viewed on this website. Please consider making a donation through a secure PayPal transaction to support the school success of students in Butte County. Any amount is greatly appreciated and will be used for backpacks, school supplies, and emergency assistance for homeless students.

For a minimum donation of $20.00, we will send you a DVD that is suitable for large audience viewing. During PayPal checkout click Optional: Name/Address to send DVD and let us know where to send your copy.  Join us in making schools and communities a safe and welcoming place for ALL students!
