Homeless Education Program

Homeless Education Program

Carla Wallace, LMSW Homeless Liaison


Gwinnett County Public Schools (GCPS) implemented The Homeless Education Program (HEP) to ensure access to a free, appropriate public education for children and youth experiencing homelessness. The Homeless Education Program operates in accordance with the McKinney-Vento Homeless Education Act, Title VII- B, reauthorized in 2015. GCPS assigns a Homeless Liaison to oversee The Homeless Education Program. The Homeless Liaison assists the local schools to assure identified homeless children and youth receive the following services:

  • Timely Enrollment
  • Transportation
  • Education Related Support Services (ERSS)
  • Community Resource Information

The primary goal of the Homeless Liaison is to eliminate barriers to school enrollment and promote academic success for all students. In addition to providing support to local schools, the Homeless Liaison along with the school social workers serves as the link between families and community resources. The Homeless liaison is responsible for providing on-going training to families, schools, and community resources in an effort to promote awareness, education and most of all sensitivity to the needs of families/students experiencing homelessness.
