The definition of homelessness used by housing agencies excludes most children and families who must stay with other people temporarily because there is nowhere else to go (“doubled-up”), or who pay for a motel room. These situations are unstable and often unsafe; jeopardize the health and development of children; and increase children’s risk of homelessness as adults. Join ICAAP’s Collaborative on Child Homelessness – Illinois to hear from national campaign leaders at SchoolHouse Connection about how to join the campaign to create greater housing access, visibility, and support for all children and families experiencing homelessness, no matter where they happen to be staying.
