Access to early childhood services for young children experiencing homelessness

Resource Type: Reports & Papers
Author(s): Perlman, Staci M.; Shaw, Sara H.; Kieffer, Charles H.; Whitney, Grace-Ann C.; Bires, Carie;
Date Issued: 2017
Publisher(s): Springer International (Firm)
Description: Prior research demonstrates that engagement in high-quality early childhood services can serve as a protective factor against these early risks (Puma et al., 2010). However, little is known about what factors facilitate/impede access to these services for young children experiencing homelessness. In that context, these two companion studies were designed to address several overlapping research questions: (1) Are providers and parents aware of early education services for young children experiencing homelessness and do parents receive support to access these services? (2) What factors impede access to early childhood services among young children experiencing homelessness? (3) What factors facilitate access to early childhood services? (4) In what ways does cross-systems collaboration facilitate homeless family participation in early childhood services? (5) What can be identified as promising practices among communities for facilitating access to early childhood services for families experiencing homelessness? (author abstract)
