Strengthening At Risk and Homeless Young Mothers and Children Initiative Strengthening At risk and Homeless Mothers and Children Initiative web site
An Initiative of the Conrad N. Hilton Foundation, in partnership with The National Center on Family Homelessness, the National Alliance to End Homelessness and ZERO TO THREE

Funded by the Conrad N. Hilton Foundation, Strengthening At Risk and Homeless Young Mothers and Children is under the guidance of a Coordinating Center consisting of The National Center on Family Homelessness (NCFH), the National Alliance to End Homelessness (NAEH) and ZERO TO THREE: National Center for Infants, Toddlers, and Families (ZTT). The Initiative seeks to improve the housing, health, and development of homeless and at-risk mothers and children. To best meet the complex needs of these families, the Initiative supports locally-based partnerships that include housing/homelessness and child development agencies, as well as those that address family preservation, domestic violence, mental health, substance use and other support services for the target population. The Initiative's desired impacts are not limited to clients alone. It also aims to integrate systems and disseminate knowledge in order to improve services for families not directly enrolled in its programs.
