  • In a car, park, public space, abandoned building, or bus or train station
  • Awaiting foster care placement
  • OR in any of the above housing arrangements due to migration

If any of these are true, you may have certain rights as a family/person in a temporary housing situation. If you are in a temporary housing situation, your children may qualify for assistance under the McKinney-Vento Act.
