Summary
This report outlines the findings and recommendations for the community development, human services and education sectors to improve outcomes for students.
Description

Research shows that students do better when they have a safe and stable home. Enterprise and The NHP Foundation partnered to better understand educators’ perspectives on the intersection of housing and education. This paper summarizes the findings of a survey of 500 educators and presents five recommendations for the community development, education and human services fields. These recommendations are:
•    Increase the availability of service-enriched housing
•    Enhance school staff training and improve support plans
•    Recognize the importance of building trust with students and families
•    Remove barriers faced by educators to connect students with supportive services
•    Create and promote cross-sector partnerships to ensure families are served and supports are aligned
These recommendations are designed to help educators better support the needs of their students and students’ families.
