My Students

We have many students who are living on their own, with friends, or extended family because their parents are unable or unwilling to support them. These students are sleeping on couches, moving from place to place, often working to pay rent and buy food, as well as attending school and trying to graduate.

PV is a very diverse school- about 10% of our students are refugees and learning English.

We are roughly 50% Hispanic, 20% African American, 25% Caucasian, and 5% Native American, Pacific Islander, Asian, or multi racial.

Our homeless and independent students face so many barriers, and we work hard to make school a place that is safe, comforting, and positive. This includes providing students with school supplies, hygiene products, gift cards for food, and food boxes. We have teen parents as well and help to provide them with diapers, wipes, other baby supplies, clothing, and anything we can to make coming to school easier.

My Project

My students work hard to get to school every day, being worried about how to buy food and hygiene supplies is something a teenager shouldn't have to deal with, but they do. By providing hygiene supplies, my students will have one less thing to worry about and won't avoid coming to school due to embarrassment over their hygiene.

I would like to be able to provide all of my homeless and independent students with shampoo and conditioner, body wash, face wash, pads/tampons for the girls, and deodorant.

Students often avoid school if they aren't clean because they feel ashamed. This project will help ensure they are clean and remove one barrier from their lives.
