Region 3                     

Region 3 includes the counties of Adams, Cumberland, Franklin, Mifflin, Huntingdon, Juniata, Perry and York. There are 35 school districts served by Region 3.  Pennsylvania's Education for Children and Youth Experiencing Homeless Program in Region 3 depends on these counties to report homeless students so that needed services can be provided to the students.

Services available to homeless students in Region 3 include after-school tutoring programs, information, trainings, school supplies, and uniforms. The services vary by county, however the objective is the same for each county in Region 3. These initiatives include; to inform local school districts of their responsibilities to homeless children and youth; to increase awareness about the needs of homeless children and youth; to increase awareness of the needs of the children; to evaluate and address any educational barriers; to explain current legislation and policies already in place; to provide practical tips for working with homeless children; and offer opportunities for homeless children and youth to develop their educational and recreational interests.
