The McKinney-Vento Definition of Homeless:
Subtitle VII-B of the McKinney-Vento Homeless Assistance Act defines homeless as follows:
The term "homeless children and youths" means individuals who lack a fixed, regular, and adequate nighttime residence and includes:
Children and youths who are sharing the housing of other persons due to loss of housing, economic hardship, or a similar reason; are living in motels, hotels, trailer parks, or camping grounds due to the lack of alternative adequate accommodations; are living in emergency or transitional shelters; or are abandoned in hospitals;
Children and youths who have a primary nighttime residence that is a public or private place not designed for or ordinarily used as a regular sleeping accommodation for human beings;
Children and youths who are living in cars, parks, public spaces, abandoned buildings, substandard housing, bus or train stations, or similar settings; and
Migratory children (as such term is defined in section 1309 of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965) who qualify as homeless for the purposes of this subtitle because the children are living in circumstances described above.

G2S. We are the Wolfpack.
Wolves are strong, smart individuals who are loyal to their pack. A wolfpack is stronger together – working jointly
toward common goals, communicating and taking care of one another.
At G2S, our focus is to empower the individual while working together, as a school family, towards a common goal of success.
Our logo depicts the G2S Wolfpack: It first appears to be a single wolf, but with a second glance, the support of the pack reveals itself below.
