NCFH Webinar: Findings from the Strengthening At-Risk and Young Mothers and Children Experiencing Homelessness Inititative
This webinar will introduce participants to the Strengthening At-Risk Young Mothers and Children Initiative, a multi-year, multi-site project funded by the Conrad N. Hilton Foundation from 2007-2012. The Initiative aimed to improve housing, health, and developmental outcomes of homeless and at-risk young mothers aged 18-25 and their children. Findings from the Initiative indicate that the needs of young homeless families are similar to homeless families overall, but are developmentally determined and more intense. Programs serving young homeless families should understand the impact of trauma and homelessness on young mothers and children, strategically integrate community and in-house services, and tailor interventions. This session will provide an overview of the Initiative’s findings and recommendations.
