Adams 14 and The Salvation Army Partner to Support Families Facing Housing Challenges

Thanks to a $750,000 grant award from the Colorado Department of Local Affairs Division of Housing, Adams 14, in partnership with The Salvation Army, will be able to support nearly 100 of its district families who may be facing housing challenges over the next two years.

This generous grant will provide eviction prevention and rapid rehousing services to students and their families who are qualified to receive benefits under the McKinney-Vento Homeless Assistance Act. The grant will assist students and families in securing or maintaining stable housing, especially those impacted by COVID-19.

In Adams 14, nearly 70 students are facing housing challenges, as outlined by the McKinney-Vento Act, which was enacted to address the numerous barriers homeless children face in obtaining a free, appropriate public education.

School leadership, family liaisons, and the district’s McKinney-Vento coordinator will work together to identify families most impacted by COVID-19. Those families will be connected to a case manager from The Salvation Army who will help create a sustainability plan with wrap-around services to enable long-term success for the selected families.

To learn more about family eligibility criteria, please contact Mary Ann Mosquera, McKinney-Vento liaison, at
