Ms. Aleah Green, "Once the behavior of the district was documented, the Michigan Department of Education provided the information on the National Law Center for Homelessness & Poverty. The moment I made contact with them I came to realize that I had not lost everything. They reminded me that I was not powerless. And, fortunately for my son, I was able to establish a relationship with The National Law Center on Homelessness & Poverty, people who share the common goals of policy advocacy, as well as public education. Now, Shiloh is doing very well in school."
