We partner with transitional housing and emergency shelters across the city, where we create safe and fun play spaces in the shelters where the children live. More than 200 weekly volunteers dedicate their time, serving as playmates and mentors to children from 6 months to 12 years old. Learn more.
News & Notes
The tragic death of an 11-month-old should be yet another wake up call for the city that families experiencing homelessness are in crisis and desperately need services that focus on the unique needs of children.
Yesterday, I testified before the city’s Department of Human Services Performance Oversight Hearing with a request that the city fund and place Children’s Services Coordinators in each of its new Ward-based short-term family housing (STFH) shelters.
