Connect, share, and learn with your peers.
The School/Housing Network is a peer-learning group for McKinney-Vento liaisons and community-based partners from across Washington State. We meet monthly to support each other, discuss challenges, and share announcement, resources, and strategies for supporting students and families experiencing homelessness. It is also a space for Building Changes to learn about your experiences so we can lift up your voices and strengthen our collective advocacy work.
Meetings are held via Zoom on the third Thursday of the month from October through May. New members are welcome to join anytime!
