This book helps educational leaders provide support for students who face significant barriers to college access, success, and retention. The authors offer research-based, practical guidance to allow readers to evaluate these issues within their local context, create and implement a plan of action, and sustain those efforts over time. Vignettes based on interviews with students experiencing homelessness and housing insecurity and contributions from practitioners are woven throughout the text to illustrate promising-practice recommendations. Topics include trauma-informed frameworks, policies affecting homelessness and housing insecurity, transitioning to college, supporting college retention, collaborations and partnerships, and transitioning to life after college. This practical resource can be used as a professional development tool for student affairs, academic affairs, health and wellness centers, and other campus-based support services.

Book Features:

  • Guidance for evaluating food and housing insecurity in a local context.
  • Practical ideas for designing and implementing solutions.
  • Useful strategies for building a team and securing resources.
  • Case studies that include voices of students and higher education practitioners.
