National Runaway Prevention Month focuses on the importance of prevention services.
Research finds that the stresses of family homelessness can affect a child’s well-being: delaying developmental milestones, compromising health and social/emotional regulation, and making it harder for them to enter school ready for the joys of learning. Head Start’s comprehensive services approach addresses each child’s need, whether it’s a doctor or dentist visit, assessing learning delays, or helping parents set bedtime routines in a shelter.
