McKinney-Vento Homeless Assistance

Hudsonville Public Schools' homeless program is provided collaboratively with the Ottawa Intermediate School District and the State of Michigan.  In accordance with the McKinney-Vento Homeless Act of 2001, our program strives to eliminate barriers to education for homeless children and youth by addressing and supporting the educational needs of students who find themselves in temporary or transitional housing during the school year.

We work closely with area shelters and housing providers, area community resources providers and agencies, to help ensure educational stability, support, and encouragement for students and families in short-term, temporary, and transitional housing while they secure permanent housing.
