SHIP provides urgent services and resources to the hundreds of Frederick County Public School (MD) students experiencing homelessness each year.
Poverty and homelessness are pervasive within our schools, with these children significantly impacted across every dimension their lives. These children can be found in every city, hamlet and village within Frederick County, and within the vast majority of schools within our school system. This issue cuts across grades and all ethnic lines. And sadly, the numbers continue to grow each year.
