- Title: CALL TO ACTION: The Urgency in Identifying and Enrolling our Youngest Children Experiencing Homelessness into Quality Early Learning Programs
- Date: Wednesday, November 8, 2023
- Time: 9 am to 10:30 am
- Presenters: Amy Requa, Senior Health Manager, PA Keys, and Tracy Duarte, Director, PA Head Start State Collaboration Office
- Description: Research tells us that the stress of housing instability and homelessness leads to poor birth and health outcomes in young children that can continue throughout their lifespan. Identifying young children experiencing homelessness and enrolling them in high quality early learning programs such as Head Start and Early Head Start can help to prevent many of the health disparities associated with homelessness and negate their long-term impacts. Please join us to learn how the work of School District Homeless Liaisons can positively impact the future health and development of young children experiencing homelessness in PA.
