About: The Family Resource Center helps McKinney-Vento and Foster students of the Placerville Union School District
succeed in school by connecting their families to community resources and providing students basic essential items in order to
support their emotional, social and academic needs.
What is McKinney-Vento (MV): The McKinney-Vento Homeless Assistance Act states that a child or youth is
considered homeless if he or she “lacks a fixed, regular, and adequate nighttime residence.”
