The Hopes Collaborative works to remove enrollment barriers, increase school attendance, and ultimately improve the academic success of homeless children and youth under the McKinney-Vento Homeless Education Assistance Act.

Technical assistance and trainings​ are available to LEA's, charter schools, organizations and agencies involved in working with children, youth and families experiencing homelessness. ​
