Women, Children, Family, and Youth Initiative
Millions of families are subject to extreme poverty and homelessness in the United States, and contribute to the thousands of deaths that are counted by agencies across the country. Children and youth exposed to extreme hazards such as an unsafe living environment or a dangerous living space, are subject to lifelong health risks. Youth.gov reports that homeless young people experience higher rates of chronic health problems, trauma-related injuries, and nutritional problems, including starvation, obesity, and associated dental complications. The trauma and unnecessary suffering of women, children, family and youth needs to end to prevent further suffering, death, and health disparities.
On April 22nd, 2022 at 2pm EST, Stetson University and Bring America Home Now are partnering to host a launch that discusses the experiences and struggles of Women, Children, and Families that experience extreme poverty and homelessness.
