Chiumento Law Launches CARES Fund for Student Homelessness In Flagler

Chiumento Law, one of the most prominent law firms serving Flagler County, announced recently the launch of its new CARES Fund to address student homelessness. The creation of the fund coincides with Chiumento Law’s 50th year in operation.
Standing for Community Assistance Relief Ending Student Homelessness, the CARES Fund is described by Chiumento Law as “filling the gap left by federal funding from the McKinney-Vento Act.” Passed in 1987, the bill was created to fund homeless shelters with an emphasis on the elderly, handicapped, and children. Despite the provisions established by this law, student homelessness remains an issue in the United States.
Flagler Schools in particular has over 240 homeless students according to a figure quoted in the law firm’s release.
