Tens of thousands of families with children experience homelessness in the United States each year. Families with children are unique among the homeless population; they experience a range of complex needs that span service systems and hinder timely return to stable housing. Furthermore, a homeless episode can impede family processes and disrupt healthy child development. A developmental, holistic approach to addressing family homelessness can leverage social workers’ unique strengths to support this population. This session will introduce concepts from child development and family studies as well as organizational science to inform the ways we deliver homeless services.
