To ensure the goals set by IHSSCO and Building Brighter Futures are met, UNCG’s SERVE Center proposes to develop and facilitate a summit as well as materials related to the topics of homelessness and school readiness to be used as a part of a training series targeted to constituents of IHSCCO and Building Brighter Futures. Initial planning for the training series will also be completed. The proposed activities and related materials all have two goals: to increase the quality of early childcare and education received by young children experiencing homelessness and to increase the ability of families to support their children’s development.
