    The Homeless Education Program has established and maintains Drop-In Centers at several comprehensive high schools within the Dallas Independent School District in support of the district's effort to increase the number of homeless students who graduate from high school.
     
    The Drop-In Center concept is one which creates a welcoming and inviting atmosphere for our homeless education students. The Drop-In Centers provide shelf-stable food, backpacks, school supplies, uniforms, and hygiene items for homeless youth. Providing these types of items helps our students maintain regular daily school attendance throughout the week.
    As an added incentive, the Drop-In Centers provide students with presentations from agencies to address college choice and college admission, new industries and career opportunities for students who graduate high school, and interactive activities focused on their needs as adolescents and academic success once a week.
     
    Drop-In Centers also provide homeless families, children, and youth with referrals to health, dental, mental health, housing, substance abuse, and other appropriate services.
