A child’s well-being and success is inextricably linked to family stability.
The trauma of homelessness can cause high rates of major depressive disorders, post-traumatic responses and anxiety disorders, all of which affect a parent's capacity to raise and support their children.
When parents are stressed, they are more likely to be less engaged or inconsistent in meeting their child's physical and social-emotional needs.
We use a two-generation approach, a strategy that aims to break the cycle of poverty by addressing the needs of both children and their parents. A child’s well-being and success is linked to family stability; we cannot impact a child’s life without helping the whole family.
Our Licensed, Master’s Level Social Workers provide one-on-one case management, employment and education resources, helping parents build the support system they need to move their families from crisis to self-sufficiency.
