TO PROVIDE SHORT-TERM EMERGENCY ASSISTANCE FOR TRANSITIONAL/NEEDY STUDENTS AS VERIFIED BY MAURY COUNTY SCHOOLS.
All work is done by Volunteers. There are no paid employees in MCSIT. All funds go directly to assist students in Maury County Schools. MCSIT works closely with homeless and unaccompanied youth by both providing for immediate needs, and mentoring to help with individual situations.
MCSIT is a non-profit organization founded in 2014 that provides short-term emergency assistance for transitional/homeless students in the Maury County School system.
Homeless students- Under the Subtitle B of Title VII of the Mckinney-Vento Homeless Assistance Act, homeless children and youths means individuals who lack a fixed, regular, and adequate nighttime residence.
Students in transition - children and youth who are in households that are usually one missed payment away from being homeless. Families may be in danger of being evicted because of lack of funds to pay rent. Students may have housing but may be living without utilities or food.
