It is the homeless liaison’s responsibility to ensure that any student who is experiencing homelessness is identified and enrolled in school.  The liaison must ensure that students receive all eligible services to facilitate student academic success. 

Liaison responsibilities include (but are not limited to) awareness, guidance, determining eligibility, enrollment and school selection, access to services such as food and transportation, working with parents and guardians and working with unaccompanied youth.
