ZERO TO THREE collaborated with SchoolHouse Connection, to continue the conversation on Young Children and Families Experiencing Homelessness. Session one of this 2-part series will provided an overview of the challenges faced by infants, toddlers and their families when they experience homelessness, and why it is important to address housing needs in ways that keep the baby in mind. Early Head Start, parenting support and pediatric practitioners shared how they are connecting service systems to simultaneously promote child health and development, parent-child relationships, and every family’s very basic need for safe, stable and adequate housing.
