Fairfax program aids homeless students

Landis Brewer suddenly became one of a growing number of teens without parents, guardians or reliable shelter in one of America's richest communities. A counselor introduced Landis to the Homeless Youth Initiative, a partnership between the Fairfax schools and the Alternative House. Federal officials see it as a model for helping vulnerable students. (Alexandra Garcia, Kevin Sieff/The Washington Post)
