Supporting Families Experiencing Homelessness Webinar Series

Homelessness is a circumstance families may experience as a result of extreme poverty and lack of affordable housing. It can also occur when a current living situation becomes unsafe or unstable. Homelessness is also a state of vulnerability for children, youth, and families. It exposes families to physical, mental, and developmental risks. For these reasons, the comprehensive services in Head Start and Early Head Start programs can be a great option. These services can reduce the impact of homelessness on young children and their families. This three-part webinar series features exemplary practices from Head Start and Early Head Start programs and collaboration directors.
