Schoolhouse Washington advances promising practices that are powered by innovation and informed by data. Successful programs happen in communities where school districts, housing nonprofits, other local organizations and individuals work collectively to combat student homelessness. We directly support the sustainability and spread of promising practices through grantmaking and the sharing of knowledge. Schoolhouse Washington also advocates for state and local laws and policies that increase opportunities for students who are homeless to achieve housing stability and educational success.
