Stop by the office of any school within Three Rivers School District. We have family advocates at each school whose job is to identify students in need of homeless assistance. Three Rivers offers resources to homeless students including the following: advocacy, school/clothing/hygiene supplies, food assistance, mentoring, access to healthcare, student fee assistance, sports fee waivers, and referral services for case management and shelter/housing options. If we can't provide what your student needs, we can refer you to a local community service that may be able to help.
