On the Map Community Snapshots: Family Homelessness in Your Community
On the Map
re-release November 2016
On the Map: Community Snapshots continues the work of our On the Map series by providing quick, one-page snapshots that look at the key factors impacting family homelessness at the community level. This helpful resource examines family homelessness by New York City Community District, analyzing key elements such as shelter entry data and the extent of student homelessness. Each snapshot also details the stability indicators of each community, from the affordability of rental units to unemployment rates.
This snapshot is part of a series analyzing student homelessness in all 50 states and the District of Columbia. It analyzes how many homeless students are enrolled in public schools in Virginia, where in the state they reside, and how they perform in school compared to their peers.
"When children are separated from their parents at an early age, they are at greater risk for mental health problems, developmental delays, and difficulty forming relationships later in life."
This new report is an in-depth analysis of dozens of demographic, economic, educational, and geographic factors that impact family homelessness in New York City.
