5 years.

By the time a child celebrates their 5th birthday, 90% of their brain development has already occurred.

5 years is all the time we have to help a child heal from the severe developmental delays homelessness can cause. After that, the likelihood of a child having lifelong mental, physical, and emotional issues skyrockets. Not to mention the likelihood they’ll grow up repeating the same cycle of generational poverty as their parents. If we can help the entire family before time runs out, we can break the cycle and restore families to a place where they can thrive.

Your gifts go directly toward our comprehensive programs and services that help Vogel change the trajectory of the lives of families recovering from the trauma of homelessness.
