Supports for Young, Homeless Children

Children who are homeless, in temporary housing, doubled up with family or friends, or who move repeatedly are at increased risk of having developmental problems and learning difficulties. OCD is working with several partners to enhance services and improve public policy to meet the needs of these children and families. Our partners currently include The Education Law Center, the Allegheny Intermediate Unit, the Homeless Children’s Education Fund, Allegheny County Department of Human Services and The Heinz Endowments.
