What JOIN does:
Last year, more than a quarter of the households that JOIN helped were families with children. About 6% of the homeless people who are sleeping outside or in their cars are families with children. Families with children make up 36% of the total emergency shelter population, 50% of the transitional housing population, and 80% of the households accessing rent and mortgage assistance in our community. Clearly, families in our community are struggling to meet basic needs, and find and retain stable housing. This threatens not just the individual health and well-being of the family, but the overall health of our community. Studies indicate that homelessness increases the likelihood that families will separate or dissolve – a traumatic event for families and a costly one for the community. Even if the family is not separated, the effects of homelessness can be severe. The associated stress that results from economic, social, and psychological dislocations can negatively affect the health and well-being of both parents and children.
