The Impact of Homelessness on Children and Families

Health Federation of Philadelphia

Instructor - Laura Hinds MSW, LCSW - pediatric social worker
1/14/16 1:00 PM - 4:00 PM (Eastern Time)

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

Will there be any capacity to broadcast this so that people outside of Philadelphia can gain this knowledge? Sounds like a really wonderful program. Thanks!
