Roundtable on Homeless Children - Discussion Synthesis. Opportunities for Collaboration


There are currently numerous collaborations among Federal agencies that serve homeless children, most notably those between HHS and HUD, and the USICH’s new Federal Strategic Plan to Prevent and End Homelessness. However, discussion at the Roundtable identified areas of fragmentation in the service delivery system that require additional collaboration and collaboration with new Federal partners. Collaboration with the Department of Education was singled out in particular given the key role that schools and school-based programs play in providing structure and stability for homeless children.

Other Federal agencies suggested as significant collaborators include the Department of Justice (including domestic violence programs as well as criminal justice), the Administration for Children and Families (including child care and foster care), Health Resources and Services Administration, and the Department of Veterans Affairs.
