This publication provides a few tips for those working with young people who have experienced homelessness or foster care and are being displaced from their colleges or programs of higher education to help these youth manage the current health crisis.  Juvenile Law Center was thrilled to collaborate with The Hope Center for College, Community and Justice and Schoolhouse Connection to produce this document that we hope will help young people as they pursue their education.
