The Institute for Children, Poverty and Homelessness recently released a new policy brief on child care for homeless children. This brief, the seventh in the “Profiles or Risk” series examining characteristics of homeless families in the United States, explores differences in child care by housing status. Ever-homeless women receive child care subsidies less often than their stably housed peers and are the most likely to use informal arrangements that provide few developmental supports for children. Ever-homeless women also report more frequent disruptions of employment or training due to unreliable child care.
