Called to Care™
One of the most devastating consequences of family homelessness is the
impact it has on a child’s education. For children who are homeless, the
start of the school year is additionally stressful if they do not have
the school supplies their housed classmates have on the first day of
school. Since it was introduced eight years ago Operation Backpack has
outfitted more than 30,000 boys and girls, with new, full,
grade-specific backpacks in time for the start of the school year.
