Overburdened and underfunded, even the best shelters have a hard time providing adequate services for the adults who depend on them. The children of these troubled families, however, face even more hurdles. The shelter experience often puts them at risk of disease and tremendous emotional stress. Preserving Childhood for Children in Shelters provides useful "how-to" information to help shelters create a safe, healthful, and supportive environment for its youngest residents.
