Homeless Students

Are You or Someone You Care About:

 - in a shelter, motel, vehicle or campground?
 - on the street, in an abandoned building or in another inadequate accommodation?
 - “couch surfing” with other people because you have nowhere else to live?
 - supporting yourself, but at risk of losing housing?
 - on the verge of a crisis?

If you’re on your own but lack financial resources to secure stable housing, help may be available. 

You may qualify as an independent student on the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) when applying for federal financial aid for college. Speak with any of the following people to discuss your eligibility:

-  A Daytona State Financial aid advisor who can help you complete your FAFSA;
-  A representative of DSC’s Center for Women and Men (Building 300, Room 227), who can offer college and community resources and referrals to help you stay in school;
-  The local homeless education liaison in your school district (if you are dual-enrolled);
-  The director of a HUD-funded or Runaway and Homeless Youth Act-funded shelter where you have stayed or received services.
