The Siemer Institute will enhance educational opportunities for school-aged children by preventing family homelessness and reducing school instability.
The Siemer Institute oversees a network of programs for families with school-aged children at risk of homelessness. These programs provide comprehensive services to stabilize families in their homes while keeping children in their schools. Our programs are locally designed and locally managed to ensure that they respond to immediate community needs. No single approach to homelessness prevention works everywhere, so our partners have the flexibility to identify the most effective solutions for their communities while working within a nationally managed collective impact model. The Siemer Institute is more than a funder. We build partnerships with United Ways across the country to identify community-appropriate solutions. We provide multi-year grants to enable our partner communities to build lasting, effective programs.
