While all sectors intersect to impact educational outcomes for youth, I am moved particularly by the effects of housing and food access on youth and families. Growing up in a food insufficient and housing transient family, I experienced firsthand how important stable housing and a good meal is to children’s ability to learn in school and thrive.
