During the 2014-15 school year, Colorado school districts identified nearly 24,700 students who were homeless, an increase of about 600 students from the previous school year. The number of homeless students in Colorado has skyrocketed since 2006-2007. A student is considered homeless if he or she is living in a homeless shelter, unsheltered, doubled-up in a household with another family due to economic hardship, or living in a hotel, motel or shelter. To find data on the number of homeless students in your county, please visit the KIDS COUNT Data Center.
