Webinar/Resources for Children Experiencing Homelessness
October 23, 2013

Hundreds of young children and their families in Pennsylvania struggle with the psychological, physical, and developmental impact of homelessness. PA Key, the Office of Child Development and Early Learning (OCDEL), and the Early Intervention Technical Assistance (EITA) leadership have developed and released a webinar titled Young Children and their Families Experiencing Homelessness. This webinar is now available on the EITA portal. Access www.eita-pa.org and type “homelessness” in the search box. The webinar focuses on the challenges of homelessness for young children and the laws and regulations that outline responsibility in addressing this population. It describes existing OCDEL programs and offer resources to help alleviate some of the barriers families experiencing homelessness face. The presentation is approximately 25 minutes. In addition, the webinar contains a resource list to better connect children and families with resources in the community.

RCPA members that have or serve as an additional resource that you would like to add to the resource list are encouraged to email Andrea Algatt. The resource list will be updated as additional resources are identified.
