children FPN's Funders Together Florida invites you to preview the findings of the Homelessness and Education in Florida: Impacts on Children and Youth report, co-authored by the Shimberg Center for Housing Studies at UF and Miami Homes for All. 

Commissioned by JPMorgan Chase & Co., the report explores the impacts of homelessness and housing instability on the education of children and youth in Florida by focusing on students’ experiences. The findings are based on student data provided by the Florida Department of Education (FDOE) and phone interviews with school district staff serving as homelessness education liaisons in 29 counties throughout Florida. The report also includes policy recommendations based on the report findings and best practices from across the country.

Join us for an overview of the report, policy recommendations and key findings followed by discussion with your colleagues from Tampa Bay's nonprofit and philanthropic sectors.
