The year before, the district had 726 homeless studnents, about 27 students less.

 

Continuing high rates of unemployment and foreclosures still plague the area.

State-wide more than 21-thousand pre-school to high school students in Oregon are homeless.  That means they live in shelters, cars, motels and other people's homes.
