Trauma-Informed Care for Women Experiencing Homelessness and their Children

Homelessness is a traumatic experience for young children who experience it. Many young mothers experiencing homelessness have also experienced trauma either in their own childhoods or more recently. Mothers’ Day is a time for us to celebrate mothers and their role raising children. USICH hosted a webinar on the ways homeless services programs can use a trauma-informed care model to serve mothers and their children better and help break through the cycle of trauma and homelessness.

Panelists included:

USICH’s Executive Director Barbara Poppe
Director for SAMHSA’s National Center of Trauma Informed Care Joan Gillece
Research Assistant for Center for Social Policy at the University of Massachusetts Boston and Program Associate for Advocates for Human Potential with PATH, Julia Tripp.
