Children often move, causing them to frequently change schools and fall behind academically. These children usually live in overcrowded conditions.

There is often a lack of basic resources such as appropriate clothing, food, transportation and money for basic school supplies. School is one of the few stable and secure places in a homeless child's life.

A student is considered to be "homeless" if, due to a lack of housing they must reside in a shelter, motel, vehicle or campground, on the street, in abandoned buildings or doubled-up with relatives or friends due to economic hardship or eviction.

A student can become homeless due to a house fire or other natural disaster resulting in a temporary or permanent loss of their home.
