ASD Homeless Children & Youth Donations

ASD’s Homeless Children and Youth Initiative first priority is to identify students experiencing homelessness, and then develop and implement strategies to address barriers impeding enrollment, attendance and participation in educational activities.

Each year, Allentown School District connects with over 430 children and youth classified as homeless. The reasons for homelessness include immigration, poverty, early pregnancy, rental evictions, changes in employment and domestic violence. These family developments may play a role in leaving an innocent child without a place to call home.

7 Hours of Sanity

A Poem by Russell “Rooster” Valentini, ASD Homeless Student Liaison & Site Coordinator

7 hours of sanity,
That’s what the school day means to me.
A place with heat, water and light,
And somewhere to rest after a sleepless night.

7 hours of sanity,
That’s what the school day means to me,
A place I can get two meals to eat,
And every day I attend, I have the same seat.

7 hours of sanity,
That’s what the school day means to me,
A place to get a band-aid from the nurse,
And maybe some antiseptic so it doesn’t get worse.

7 hours of sanity,
That’s what the school day means to me,
A place I can jump rope and play basketball,
And see the gym teacher who is six foot tall.

7 hours of sanity,
That’s what the school day means to me,
A place I can go to learn,
The only place where I’ll get a turn
