Working Together to Connect Pregnant and Parenting Youth Experiencing Homelessness with Early Head Start
FYSB and OHS collaborate to help pregnant and parenting homeless youth and their children.
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.
