Like Infographics? Interested in visual representations of some of the issues that can accompany childhood homelessness and poverty? Then take a peek at the infographics we recently created for our seven-part series, “Homelessness and Poverty in the Public Education System.” Learn more by reading the series on Firesteel’s website here.
At the Project on Family Homelessness, we are always interested in how homelessness, poverty and stress impact child development and adult outcomes. Recent research into these relationships for our seven-part series “Homelessness and Poverty in the Public Education System” yielded not only great insights, but, thanks to the talents of our digital designer Krista Kent, 10 new infographics.
Originally designed to accompany the series introduction and each of the seven parts of the series, they address everything from the academic impacts of homelessness, to classroom indicators that a child isn’t stably housed, to the intersection of homelessness and special ed services. Easy to understand and visually appealing, they are a great resource for advocates, social service providers and educators. We hope that you find them useful. Please feel free to share them widely.
Watch for our “super-infographic” summarizing key concepts from the whole series in early October!
