Teaching Resources

As the saying goes, children are our future. The best way to change negative stereotypes about people experiencing homelessness and ultimately end homelessness is to teach young people how to be compassionate advocates.

The Faces of Homelessness Speakers’ Bureau gives presentations to thousands of students each year. Learn more about how to bring a panel of speakers to your school.

A great time to involve your students in building a greater understanding of homelessness is during National Hunger & Homelessness Awareness Week. Each year, the week before Thanksgiving is designated as a week to take action and build awareness in your community. Learn more about how to take part.

Below is a list of lesson plans and other resources for educators:
