Lost in the Shuffle: The Impact of Child Homelessness on Children’s Education in Toronto

Lost_in_the_shuffle_impact_of_homelessness.jpgKid Builders Research Project Phase 3 examines the educational needs of homeless children living in Toronto and the links between homelessness and school success. The Kid Builders Research Project begins to build Canadian literature on the education of homeless children, looking at who homeless children are and how they experience the school system. The Kid Builders Research Project Phase 3 assesses how homelessness affects school performance, what programs and services support their educational needs and what program or policy changes are needed. Phase 3 also provides the beginnings of a profile of shelters that serve homeless families in Toronto, who they serve and what services they provide.
