The Homeless At-Risk Transitional Students (HARTS) Program provides student-centered support services that minimize academic barriers and increase access for students who are experiencing or at risk of experiencing housing insecurity. We aim to develop meaningful relationships with HARTS students and within those relationships, empower HARTS students in reaching their full potential to realize their educational goals.
