Strengthening At Risk and Homeless Young Mothers and Children
An Initiative of the Conrad N. Hilton Foundation, in partnership with The National Center on Family Homelessness, the National Alliance to End Homelessness and ZERO TO THREE
Strengthening At Risk and Homeless Young Mothers and Children was an initiative funded by the Conrad N. Hilton Foundation and local funders from 2007-2011. The Initiative, coordinated by The National Center on Family Homelessness in partnership with the National Alliance to End Homelessness and ZERO TO THREE: National Center for Infants, Toddlers, and Families, sought to improve the housing, health, and development of homeless and at-risk mothers and children. To best meet the complex needs of these families, the Initiative supported locally-based partnerships that included housing/homelessness and child development agencies, as well as those that address family preservation, domestic violence, mental health, substance use and other support services for the target population. The Initiative's desired impacts were not limited to clients alone. It also aimed to integrate systems and disseminate knowledge in order to improve services for families not directly enrolled in its programs.
