Poverty and homeless concept

An article recently published on the National Housing Conference website discussed the health implications homelessness can have on children. Many of us think of adults as the homeless population, forgetting that some of these adults are parents with young children who are suffering as well.

The article states that scientific research that has been conducted over a time period of decades has come to show that the development and growth of a child can be damaged should they experience homelessness during their early childhood. The heightened stress caused by homelessness can lead to permanent changes in the functions of the body and the brain as well as lead to serious conditions later on in life.
