Support Emergency Funding for Homeless Children, Youth, and Families, S.3923
Take one minute to protect and stabilize vulnerable children, youth and families in the wake of the coronavirus outbreak.
The coronavirus outbreak has further jeopardized the health and safety of children, youth, and families experiencing homelessness. It threatens to create new waves of family and youth homelessness, and has increased thousands of children’s vulnerability to trafficking.
In response, a bipartisan group of U.S. Senators have joined to introduce the Emergency Family Stabilization Act, S.3923. This legislation provides flexible funding directly to community-based organizations to meet the needs of children, youth, and families experiencing homelessness in the wake of the coronavirus. Providing services to children, youth and families experiencing homelessness as early as possible will reduce transmission of COVID-19, and mitigate compounding trauma and negative lifelong impacts of homelessness.
Please take one minute now to urge your U.S. Senators to sign on as cosponsors of the Emergency Family Stabilization Act, S.3923.
