Health Care:

Pinellas county Health Care for the Homeless Program


The team at Study.com recognizes that students experiencing homelessness might have questions about applying for and attending college that might be difficult to find answers to. That’s why we have recently developed a comprehensive college guide for students experiencing homelessness. Our goal is to inform them about critical information regarding their college education and share different resources that will help set them up for success. Our College Guide for Students Experiencing Homelessness offers in-depth information in several areas, including:

  • A guide to the McKinney-Vento Homeless Assistance Act and the Homeless Bill of Rights
  • A comprehensive list of resources for housing help, essentials assistance, health assistance, community support, and academic support
  • Information regarding FAFSA and scholarships available to students experiencing homelessness
