Homelessness can be particularly hard on children. This workshop will examine service strategies designed to minimize the detrimental effects of homelessness on children and promote child well-being. Strategies to enhance stability and consistency in the lives of children and a program to identify developmental delays in homeless children will be explored. This workshop examined how providers can ensure children are receiving appropriate supportive services through coordination with school liaisons, Head Start programs, and partnerships with other public systems.
