Through our SOS Fund, we’ll provide immediate assistance for 125 homeless students in Champaign County this year.

Over the last eight years, our SOS Fund has provided assistance to more than 1,100 homeless students in Champaign-Urbana. Through a joint application, the Regional Office of Education and the Champaign Urbana Schools Foundation receive funds to support these students from the United Way of Champaign County. We have also received generous support from Carle Foundation, PNC, Bank of Rantoul and Kiwanis, along with individual donations.
