How Housing Affects Child Well-Being
This paper examines how the characteristics of children’s homes affect their health, social, and emotional well-being and offers strategies for funders concerned with improving outcomes for children. Housing characteristics can include the cost of housing, residential mobility, and the surrounding neighborhood. These housing characteristics are also interrelated, as high housing costs may affect the physical condition of the home that a family is able to afford and the income level of the neighborhood in which that house is located. Further, housing conditions — specifically housing cost—have an effect on parenting, which can in turn affect a child’s development (Authors).
