Homelessness is a traumatic experience for young children who experience it. Many young mothers experiencing homelessness have also experienced trauma either in their own childhoods or more recently.
Join the United States Interagency Council on Homelessness on Wednesday, May 9, from 3:00 to 4:00 pm, for a discussion of ways homeless services programs can use a trauma-informed care model to serve mothers and their children better and help break through the cycle of trauma and homelessness.
Panelists will include USICH Executive Director Barbara Poppe and the director of SAMHSA's National Center for Trauma Informed Care, Joan Gillece.
