As the economy worsens, more families are finding themselves homeless. Despite the numbers of families moving into shelters and other forms of temporary housing, schools now have to provide basic needs while trying to raise academic achievement.

Listen to the story of Marion Delray–she’s a mother in Green Bay, Wisconsin who found herself suddenly homeless. She talks about how homelessness has affected her children and their education . . . and how her children’s school has stepped in and offered her the support she needed to get back on her feet.
