Description

Homelessness is a major problem facing the US. My work explores interventions that affect mothers and children. Specifically, I will be doing a comprehensive review of reported high impact interventions that offer mothers with services that improve their own health, and that of their children. Focusing on the outcomes of being homeless; both the mother and children’s health. I am interested in investigating the different types of interventions available to help homeless women care for their children. It is crucial to focus on mother’s health because it reflects how well their children’s health is expected to be. I anticipate that there are limited programs, and I will provide suggestions for different types of interventions that will have a high impact on positive outcomes for homeless mothers and children. Examples of programs that can be implemented for expecting homeless mothers are mental health counseling, and supplementary nutrition or substance abuse programs. It is important for society to recognize that providing interventions for struggling mothers will help improve the health and family hardship for both mother and infant.
