Welcome to the website of
the Homeless Children's Education Fund!

Our Mission:
The Mission of HCEF is to advance the education of children and youth experiencing homelessness in Allegheny County by:

  • Providing educational programs and services
  • Serving as a trusted advocate
  • Sharing expertise
  • Facilitating collaborative relationships that maximize the collective impact among community partners. [Homeless Education Network (HEN)]

Our Guiding Principles:
We believe that. . .

  • Children and youth experiencing homelessness deserve equal access and full participation in the same educational and enrichment opportunities enjoyed by their stably-housed peers.
  • Young people cannot soar above the barriers of homelessness without the support of individuals and organizations that are steadfastly committed to nurturing their resilience and realizing their gifts.
  • Collaboration is essential to confront homelessness and ensure that the myriad needs of children and youth without homes are respectfully and effectively met.
