Mission Statement

The mission of Homeless Children’s Network is to decrease the trauma of homelessness and domestic violence for children, youth, and families; to empower families; and to increase the effectiveness of collaborative efforts among service providers to end homelessness and poverty.

Description

In 1992, a collaborative of six emergency family and domestic violence shelters created the Homeless Children’s Network (HCN) to address two needs: first, to address the traumatic effects of homelessness and violence in the lives of young children and their families; and second, to establish a "standard of care" across a variety of shelters and housing programs. Working directly with the community, we help children and families address the root traumas that helped shape their worldviews, explore healthier perspectives, and learn practical non-violent skill sets for managing stress. We do this through comprehensive mental health services, case management, family education and support services, and community leadership.
