Kennesaw State University (Georgia) Tries to Address Homeless Students’ Needs

Kennesaw State University (Georgia) has created temporary housing for homeless students. The housing will accommodate students for about 14 days while the University works to find permanent housing.

The University has become aware of growing numbers of students attending the school and living in their cars or couch surfing in friends’ or family members’ homes or apartments. To address homeless students’ housing and other needs, the University hired staff dedicated to assisting these students with meeting basic needs.

A donation from the University’s charitable foundation funds this program.
