Supporting Families to End Homelessness

ACF has placed a major emphasis on efforts to prevent family homelessness and to help families quickly access the services and safe and stable housing they need

Stable housing is a crucial contributor to family economic success and to healthy child development. And research shows that experiencing homelessness can have devastating consequences for families. Homelessness is often associated with family separations, poor health, exposure to violence, stress, school moves and absences, and social, emotional, and behavioral problems, as well as academic delays, for young children.
