About Homeless Children’s Network:
The Homeless Children’s Network (HCN) works to address two needs: first, the
traumatic effects of homelessness and violence in the lives of young children and their
families; and second, to establish a “standard of care” across a variety of shelters and
housing programs. Working directly with the community, we help children and families
address the root traumas that helped shape their worldviews, explore healthier
perspectives, and learn practical non-violent skill sets for managing stress. We do this
through comprehensive mental health services, case management, family education
and support services, and community leadership.
For more information about HCN, please visit our website at https://www.hcnkids.org
