We are always interested in how homelessness, poverty and stress affect 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, nine 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.
