During the 2021 school year, 1,901 DuPage County students (birth to 12th grade) were identified as lacking a fixed, regular, and adequate nighttime residence. This includes children living in shelters, cars, and most commonly those children sharing housing with others due to loss of housing or economic hardship. This is how homelessness is defined for our school children under the McKinney Vento Homeless Assistance Act.
