Homeless Education Curriculum - Sensitivity Awareness and Prevention
The Homeless Education Curriculum was created in collaboration with the Miami-Dade County Homeless Trust to foster increased student sensitivity and tolerance to the issue of homelessness by bringing a focus to the challenges faced by homeless students.
An accompanying video, “It Can Happen to You”, sensitizes students to the homeless population. The video content helps them understand that anyone can be homeless and eradicating the stigma that being homeless means being bad. The video has already been distributed to all schools, but is also available upon request.
