The 2016 Annual Awards Ceremony

November 17, 2016

When a child has a home… he can study and play in his own room.
When a child has a home… she can recover from illness in the comfort of her own bed.
When children have a home…they can thrive, not just survive

When we think of children growing up, we picture them at home. After all, home is the center of family life. But, on a single night in 2015, nearly 128,000 children in 64,000 families did NOT have a home. They were homeless. 

Every child should have a home. Children who don’t may fall behind at school and experience poor health. Homelessness is traumatic and its effects can last long after the homelessness has ended. Being without a home is hard on their families, too, and makes it difficult for parents to stay employed, and sometimes even to hold the family together.

At the National Alliance to End Homelessness, we work to ensure that communities across the country are using the best and most effective methods to end homelessness for children and their families. This year at our Annual Awards Ceremony, we will be celebrating those who have led the field to successfully end child and family homelessness.
