The McKinney-Vento Act is a federal law that provides rights and protections to homeless children and youth.

The Adams 12 Five Star Schools Homeless Assistance Program exists to remove barriers to education and promotes academic success by developing and implementing policies, procedures and systems that support enrollment and retention of children and youth experiencing unstable housing.

The mission of the Homeless Assistance Program is to foster academic and personal stability and quality in the student’s education career while attending Adams 12 Five Star Schools. Our goals are to provide a one-on-one assistance with basic needs in collaboration with the Student and Family Outreach Program; prompt close working relationships between families and school district personnel; and encouraging collaboration between the school district and community agencies.

The team of liaisons that make up the Student and Family Outreach Program also support all the district's homeless students and families. Leigh Her-Moua is the lead homeless liaison for Adams 12 Five Star Schools and can be reached at (720) 972-4759.
