Children experiencing homelessness need more than a fixed, safe place to sleep. They also need educational supports, food security, and resources for health and well-being.
Acknowledging the many challenges faced by homeless children and their families is the first step to identifying and supporting their needs. When it comes to meeting the needs of vulnerable children, we cannot rely on an overly-narrow definition of what it means to experience homelessness.
As part of Hunger and Homelessness Awareness Week, ICPH will release series of infographics, videos, interactive maps, and Q&As exploring the health and nutrition challenges faced by children and families experiencing homelessness.
