Children and Families | National Center on Family Homelessness
The National Center on Family Homelessness works to understand and respond to the unique needs of children and families experiencing homelessness. Through research and evaluation, we learn what families need to exit homelessness and strategies that work to prevent homelessness. We use this knowledge to design tools and resources to support programs, offer training and technical assistance to homeless service providers, and build connections between key systems serving families who are homeless.
