The purpose of this case study is to identify the factors associated with student homelessness. There are currently more than 1.5 million children who are living in a homeless family (National Center for Family Homelessness, 2009), and a percentage of that number are homeless students living on their own. This study engages existing literature to identify the causes of student homelessness and the impacts it has on the lives of those students. The study was conducted by using quantitative research through a Mood and Feelings Questionnaire (MFQ) and qualitative research by utilizing a psychosocial assessment called the home, education and employment, eating, activities with peers, drugs, sexual activity, suicide and depression, and safety (HEEADSSS). Through the utilization of both the questionnaire and assessment, this researcher was able to see into the lives of these students and discover the factors associated with student homelessness.
