Homeless Students Need Help


Homeless Student FundEvery day, homeless students face the daunting task of trying to focus on a quality education while worrying about the basic needs like reliable source of food, clothing and shelter.

Since 2014, LEAF has been supporting District 742 students facing homelessness through our Homeless Student Services Fund.  The need is even greater during the COVID-19 pandemic.  Can you help us help students in need?
