National Collaborative Homeless Children & Trauma

To address the unmet trauma-related needs of homeless children and their parents, The National Center on Family Homelessness , the Trauma Center and other partners will form the National Collaborative for Trauma-Surviving Homeless Children (the Collaborative). The Collaborative will work to increase knowledge, both within and outside the National Child Traumatic Stress Network, about the range of trauma experienced by homeless children and their parents. The project will collaborate in defining best practices for the multiple service systems that touch homeless children and families in the Boston area. In addition, it will develop methods and strategies for increasing access and decreasing barriers to treatment and services. It will also attend to cultural and linguistic competence of training curricula, assessment tools, intervention manuals, and other knowledge products. To pursue these goals, it will work in three complementary domains: the local area, the Network, the national level for education, training, and dissemination.
