You can prevent kids from experiencing the trauma of homelessness.

You can prevent kids from experiencing the trauma of homelessness.
October 30, 2018 Giving Tuesday

Josh, a fifth grader, has a knack for making friends. At school, you can always find him surrounded by other kids. He loves to talk—and knows how to tell a story that can make others laugh.

 

This year, Josh’s younger brother has had a lot of health problems and the medical bills have been stacking up. Because his mom missed so many days of work to take care of Josh’s brother, she lost her job, making it impossible to pay rent. This led to an eviction notice. With nowhere else to go, Josh’s family will soon be homeless. Research says the disruption and trauma of homelessness can impact Josh’s emotional health long term. He will be much more likely to develop anxiety as well as to become withdrawn and depressed. At MOM, we say together we can change that. Join us on Giving Tuesday—and support our Housing Stability Program that helps kids like Josh avoid the trauma of homelessness.

#GivingTuesday. A moment of action. A lifetime of change.
