McKinney-Vento Information

The McKinney-Vento Act defines homeless children and youths as individuals who lack a fixed, regular, and adequate nighttime residence. This definition specifically includes children and youth living in emergency shelters, motels, hotels, campgrounds, cars, public spaces or abandoned buildings; and children and youths who are sharing the housing of other persons due to loss of housing, economic hardship, or a similar reason.  If you believe, your situation would qualify for McKinney-Vento services, please contact Rebecca McSwain, Mckinney-Vento Liaison at 910-251-2947 or rebecca.mcswain@nhcs.net
