YOUR IMPACT

These baby blankets will go to our non-profit partner Community’s Child, a residential living program open to unhoused, single mothers with an infant under the age of one.  

UNDERSTANDING THE IMPACT OF HOMELESSNESS ON WOMEN AND CHILDREN

Explore our educational resources about homelessness and children:

Before you begin exploring the resources on this page, ask your children what home means to them and share what home means to you. Try to imagine with them what it means to be unhoused and not have a place of your own. Unhoused means that families may be on the street, but often it means couch surfing or living in a shelter. 

Here is a read aloud of the childrens’ book A Place to Stay by Erin Gunti

"This simple, touching picture book shows readers a women's shelter through the eyes of a young girl, who, with her mother's help, uses her imagination to overcome her anxiety and adjust. Includes factual endnotes detailing various reasons people experience homelessness and the resources available to help." -Publisher's website
