The Washington Post: Homeless children were struggling to get to school on time. Now, D.C. is launching a shuttle service to help them.
CLC Executive Director Judith Sandalow spoke with Theresa Vargas of The Washington Post about the Department of Human Services’ pilot program providing shuttle service to homeless DC families and children from the hotels where they are temporarily housed to the closest Metro stops.
Children’s Law Center also pointed out that the city has a legal obligation to give homeless children school stability. “These parents should not have to worry about finding a safe and affordable way to get their children to school,” said the center’s executive director, Judith Sandalow.
