• THE PROBLEM

    High housing costs, poor housing quality, overcrowded living conditions, unstable neighborhoods, residential mobility and episodes of homelessness all have detrimental impact on child and family well-being.


  • THE SOLUTION

    Schools, healthcare facilities, neighborhood centers, and child and family services organizations can provide early identification of, and timely and appropriate responses to, indicators of housing distress.


OUR MISSION:

To promote and facilitate access to stable housing as a base for improved child and family well-being.   

Guest Blog: Today's post is by Joy Moses, writer and consultant on issues impacting low-income individuals and families, who has been working with us on policy and advocacy strategies. Here is her latest update on the 114th Congress.

In recent weeks, Congress introduced a series of bills focused on homelessness. Although they were considered during previous sessions, they are now a part of the 114th Congress with a possibility of someday reaching President Obama’s desk. Youth and veterans are targeted, potentially improving their housing options, educational opportunities, and supportive services.
