It Takes a Community to End Family Homelessness:
New Directions in Best Practices

April 4-5, 2003
The Grand Hyatt New York Hotel
New York, NY

A national conference sponsored by Homes for the Homeless, the Institute for Children and Poverty, and the Academy of Political Science.

Tonight, over one million children in America will be homeless. They and their families are living in shelters and hotels, doubled-up with friends or relatives, on the streets and in parks. As a result of their homelessness, children are struggling in school, their health is hindered, and they are not getting enough to eat. In response to these trends, the service providing community has grown to meet the needs of homeless children and their families nationwide and developed into an irreplaceable source of experience and knowledge. It is our goal to provide a forum in which professionals can share best practices, disseminate research, discuss strategies, identify resources, and stimulate and guide national dialogue on behalf of America's neediest children.
