Homelessness

What is the McKinney-Vento Act?

On July 22, 1987, the Stewart B. McKinney Homeless Assistance Act became public law. This was the first

Comprehensive federal law dealing with the problems of homelessness in America. Recently included in the 2001 No Child Left Behind Act, it is now called the McKinney-Vento Homeless Education Assistance Improvements Act of 2001. (Public Law 107-110) Subtitle B covers the Education for Homeless Children and Youths. (Sec. 721-726)

All about me:

I am married with 2 wonderful children! I love to be outdoors during any season, except for winter...I do not like the snow! I enjoy all kinds of music, play the piano and have attempted to play the guitar on numerous occasions. My family and I love to spend time at the beach, going for hikes, taking road trips and being goofy as much as possible! One of my favorite things to do is watch, listen to or go to comedy shows. Laughter is the best medicine!!! I have 3 hens that provide eggs on a daily basis, and I absolutely love decorating my house in farm motif.
