HEART (Homeless Education and Resource Team) Program
Spokane Valley HEART is a collaborative program of the Central Valley, East Valley and West Valley School Districts. The Program is in place to address and support the educational needs of students who find themselves in temporary or transitional housing during the school year. The Program works closely with the Spokane Valley Partners (10814 East Broadway - 927-1153), area shelter and housing providers, the Spokane Homeless Coalition, Greater Spokane Valley Support Network, area community resources, and the City and County of Spokane. We work together to ensure educational stability for students in short-term, temporary and transitional housing situations so they feel supported and encouraged while they secure permanent housing.
The Program also works closely with area school districts, including Spokane Public Schools, Mead, Freeman, Cheney, Deer Park, Medical Lake, Riverside, Nine Mile Falls, Great Northern, Liberty School District, Post Falls, Coeur d'Alene Schools, etc, in an effort to create a region-wide network to support students in short-term, transitional and temporary housing situations.
