This monograph describes a University Affiliated Program's initiative which targets the developmental needs of children birth to five years of age who are homeless and the services and supports provided to their families. It provides a description of the children and families served by one of the initiative's projects and an approach for the identification and referral of children who present with developmental delays and disabilities. Interventions that have been successful with families as well as barriers to accessing services are delineated. Finally, recommendations for advocacy and policy development with the developmental disabilities network are given. The goal of this monograph is to bring the issue of homelessness and its impact on the development of young children to the attention of a national audience and to influence state and national policy through the developmental disabilities network.
