Education majors offered panel on homelessness
During fall semester, the Lourdes University Department of Education presented “Homelessness: Approaches to Support Students in an Educational Setting.” Education majors designed the event and brought expert panelists to campus from Toledo Public Schools, Family House, Leading Families Home, and the Toledo Lucas County Homelessness Board who addressed teachers and social workers.
The discussion aimed to educate individuals and the general public about homelessness and, more importantly, provide valuable insight about support available for elementary and high school students who are struggling with homelessness while pursuing their education.
Panel Participants included:
- Mrs. Renee Palacios, Executive Director, Family House
- Mr. Mike Badik, Executive Director, Toledo Lucas County Homelessness Board
- Ms. Evelyn McKinney, Director of Homeless Initiatives, Toledo Public Schools
- Ms. Tammy Holder, Chief Executive Officer, Leading Families Home: A Beach House/FOCUS Partnership
