An estimated 1.2 million children under the age of six experience homelessness each year in the United States; and young children ages birth to six are more likely to experience homelessness than any other age group. (HHS, 2016). The condition of homelessness exposes young children to extreme levels of stress and trauma, which can negatively impact their overall health and development well into the future. Providers with knowledge and a deepened understanding of the significant impact of homelessness in the lives of very young children and their families can play a critical role in mitigating these devastating, lasting effects.
