Challenge

There are over half a million children devasted by homelessness in California. Mothers and children are now the fastest-growing segments of the homeless population, and the percentage of kids experiencing homelessness in the U.S. is greater today than at any point since the Great Depression. Distance learning has been a challenge for all students and their families, but for the estimated one out of 20 children in California experiencing homelessness, the challenges can seem insurmountable.

Solution

After ten weeks of tutoring, two-thirds of our students improved their assessment scores by a grade level or more. Our program serves as a consistent support system for our students during a time of great stress and fear. Homelessness is a crisis in our country and our goal is to support 4000 students experiencing homelessness in 2021. Students are provided with an online tutor and the technology they need to learn.

Long-Term Impact

Our staff and volunteers work hard to remove the barriers that stand between our students and their education. 82% of parents surveyed said their child was earning better grades as a result of having a School on Wheels tutor. "It helps them look beyond their current circumstances and see the possibility the future can hold." - Anna, Mother
