Homeless Children’s Education Fund

Retiring as the Executive Director of the Allegheny Intermediate Unit after spending more than 40 years in education, Dr. Joseph Lagana couldn't resign himself to just wile away his new excess of free time. With firsthand knowledge of the effects of homelessness on the region's schools, Joe funneled his passion and efforts into creating the Homeless Children’s Education Fund, a nonprofit committed to the advocacy, education, and direct assistance of children experiencing homelessness in Allegheny County. Since its beginning as a humble learning center—just three computers in a closet—Homeless Children’s Education Fund has grown to include 11 facilities where children and their parents can access the Internet as well as find much-needed support through emergency shelters and transitional housing.

Customer Reviews

I enjoyed the race on Saturday. It was well organized and a good route. Most importantly, I was happy to have you educate your audience by telling us a little about your organization. Keep up the good work and I'll see you next year!
