The Holt Community Foundation just recently began looking at ways to improve the equity for those living in Holt so that we can all enjoy our time in this beautiful area of Michigan. Here are some preliminary data:
- Holt has 145 homeless students. These are students doubling up with another family, living in a hotel or shelter, couch surfing, living in their cars, etc.
- 43% of our student population receive free/reduced lunches.
- There are 5 mobile home parks within our district and several apartment complexes. This creates a very transient population including lower income families.
- We have 2 hotels/motels in Holt that host homeless students.
