HousED - Housing and Education

PCY has been a pioneer in expanded learning for the past 15 years, including a focus on creating educational opportunities in public and affordable housing over the last eight years, through our HousED initiative. In 2015, we brought together a diverse group of housing agencies and educators to meet an ambitious goal: establish standards for quality expanded learning programs that speak to the unique needs and challenges of providing services to youth in public and affordable housing communities.

The resulting standards are a groundbreaking step forward, offering guidance and best practices for expanded learning in housing communities.

Over the course of three years (2014-2017), we commissioned an exhaustive assessment of HousED, and you can read the summary of that assessment here.
