Dr. Staci Perlman, Assistant Professor in HDFS, passed away unexpectedly in August 2015. Shortly before she passed away, she was awarded a grant through the William Penn Foundation to support her work studying the education of homeless youth. This grant has continued to support Dr. Perlman’s work through a collaborative project called Building Early Links for Learning (BELL). Dr. Perlman’s passion for researching homelessness is being carried on through partners throughout the Philadelphia region. Learn more about the BELL project.
