R&E Group releases paper on early care and education for children experiencing homelessness

As part of its work with the William Penn Foundation-funded Building Early Links for Learning (BELL) project, the Research & Evaluation Group at Public Health Management Corporation (R&E Group) conducted a landscape analysis to identify opportunities for better serving the needs of young children experiencing homelessness in Philadelphia and their families. R&E Group analyzed state and federal datasets relating to child and student homelessness; held a series of interviews with key stakeholders working at the juncture of young child homelessness and education; and reviewed the existing grey and peer-reviewed literatures. The landscape analysis provides a detailed characterization of young child homelessness in Philadelphia and Pennsylvania, and offers suggestions for new or improved program practices and municipal and state policies that will promote the healthy development and well-being of all children in Philadelphia and Pennsylvania. 

The landscape analysis can be found here, and an accompanying data snapshot of student homelessness in Pennsylvania can be found here
