The Impact of Homelessness on Children and Families

Health Federation of Philadelphia

Course Instructor - Laura Hinds, Cross-Systems Training Institute

Healthy child development is a challenging goal for families and children with stable environments and social supports. In contrast, the barriers and pitfalls that impact homeless children and families can have devastating effects on a child’s learning, social-emotional health, and academic achievement. This workshop seeks to clarify the impact of homelessness on children. It will also provide practical strategies to support and enhance a child’s learning experience.

 By the end of this session, participants will be able to:

  • Identify the varying types and experiences of homelessness
  • Define the challenges that disrupt healthy development
  • Use practical strategies that can be supportive for homeless children and families


Training provided by the Health Federation of Philadelphia's Multiplying Connections Initiative through a grant from Philadelphia Health Management Corporation's  (PHMC) Southeast Regional Key (SERK) Program
