Students and Families Experiencing Homelessness (SAFEH) program aims to reduce the barriers that students experiencing homelessness face in enrollment, attendance, and success in school.
Who is eligible for SAFEH services?
Students and Families Experiencing Homelessness (SAFEH) include young people who live:
- Temporarily living in a motel or hotel due to loss of housing, economic hardship, natural disaster, or similar reason
- Temporarily living with another family(s) due to loss of housing, economic hardship, natural disaster, lack of adequate housing, or similar reason (aka “doubled-up” or “tripled up”)
- Living in a car, park, trailer park, campground, abandoned building, on the streets, or other inadequate accommodations (i.e., lack of water, electricity, or heat)
- In a shelter (family, domestic violence, youth shelter, or transitional living program)
- With friends or family because they run away or are an unaccompanied youth
Share your housing status with SFUSD!
In addition to enrollment and academic rights, students eligible for SAFEH services may also receive additional support and resources from SFUSD. There are 3 ways you can share your housing status:
- Upon enrollment (or re-enrollment) to SFUSD
- Completing an online Emergency Card available on Parentvue
- Completing a housing paper survey (below) and returning it to your school's front office
