About Our Community
This community is a space for Housing Is members interested in issues related to attendance and absenteeism. Unstable housing can lead to school tardiness and truancy among low- income children, negatively impacting their academic performance. The Housing Is initiative stands on the notion that these systems are all interconnected, and it is only through cross-sector collaboration that we will build the partnerships that will help improve lives. Use the features in this community to discuss programs and policies, post research and reports, publicize events, share case studies and best practices, seek input and feedback from fellow members, and connect with others working to improve attendance.
