Understanding Student Homelessness

An Affordable Housing Breakfast

Presented by

Housing Consortium of Everett and Snohomish County


7:30am Hot Breakfast Buffet & Networking


8:00am-9:00am “Understanding Student Homelessness”, Cynthia Jones, Director, Categorical Programs, Everett School District; Amy Perusse, McKinney-Vento (KIT) Facilitator, Everett School District


  • During the 2015-16 school year there were 3,688 homeless students in Snohomish County
  • What are some of the causes of student homelessness?
  • What are we doing to reduce this number?
  • Is it possible to end student homelessness?


Research has shown that students who experience homelessness graduate high school at a much lower rate (41%) than their non-homeless peers (79%). They are more prone to chronic absenteeism, performing below grade level and emotional trauma, all conditions that have a significant impact on their future. Our presenters will help us better understand some of the causes of student homelessness and the programs currently in place to address this issue. We will also explore the topic of what we can do as a community to end student homelessness.
