This community is a space for Housing Is members interested in issues related to homelessness. Unstable housing can lead to a multitude of deleterious effects for adults and children like school churning and toxic stressors, which have life-long implications. The Housing Is initiative stands on the notion that these systems are all interconnected, and it is only through cross-sector collaboration that we will build the partnerships that will help improve lives.
