In the last school year, Faces without Places served 2,431 students experiencing homelessness and provided 7,079 services for those students. These services include, but are not limited to, the following:
1,315 services of taxi fares, gas cards, and metro tokens to and from school.
Transportation is the biggest barrier to education.
Birth certificates for 10 students to enroll in school.
These records are often lost when families move 7-8 times a year.
Uniform vouchers and shoe cards for 614 students.
As more and more schools move to a uniform policy, more and more families in poverty struggle to meet this requirement. Having a new pair of shoes that fit your feet is often a luxury for some of our families.
Backpacks and supplies for over 593 students.
Starts students on the right foot, with the resources they need to participate in school.
After school enrichment for 60 students.
