Sonia Pitzi has worked with students experiencing homelessness for close to 20 years, eliminating educational barriers through partnerships and coordination with school districts, shelters and other community agencies. She is responsible for providing training and technical assistance to all educational entities in ECYEH Region 3, which spans eight counties in southcentral Pennsylvania (Adams, Cumberland, Franklin, Huntingdon, Juniata, Mifflin, Perry, and York). In her role as regional coordinator, she supports inter-district and intra-district cooperation and communication to identify, support, ensure appropriate transportation services to, and assess and address barriers for students experiencing homelessness. In order to reach the non-sheltered homeless population, and the population of unaccompanied homeless youth, she coordinates a summer outreach and camp program that provides much needed services for this population. Sonia obtained her bachelors degree in Outdoor Education (Special Populations) from Northland College in WI and is also certified as an Olweus Bullying Prevention Trainer.
