Annual Report 2020

Your support ensured our students and tutors did not give up in 2020! 

View our 2020 Annual Report to see how your passion for learning helped kids experiencing homelessness stay connected to their education.

Since 1993, the mission of School on Wheels has never wavered: to enhance educational opportunities for children in kindergarten through twelfth grade who are experiencing homelessness. Our goal is to shrink the gaps in their learning and provide them with the highest level of education possible. Our program serves as a consistent support system for our students during a time of great stress and fear.

When schools closed, our students lost the single greatest source of stability in their lives. With its structure and normalcy (as well as food and caring adults), school was a respite from the trauma of homelessness. The largest school district in the nation, LAUSD, reported that more than 13,000 middle and high school students consistently disengaged from their online classes in fall 2020, with an additional 56,000 who did not actively participate on a daily basis. They also found that two in three students are falling behind in both literacy and math. These are the children we serve.
