Rise in Homeless Students in Lancaster County Schools

Amish Farm Lancaster County, PA 1According to the article "No Place for these Students to Call Home" by Eric G. Stark from the Sunday News, the number of homeless students in Lancaster County has risen dramatically within the past few years. In fact, the article states that there are more than 700 suburban families who are considered homeless living within Lancaster County.

Homeless students face several barriers including excessive stress and depression, and often fall behind their classmates in school because they do not have access to technology necessary to complete assignments. It is clear that homelessness is not only an urban problem.
