Researchers at Children's HealthWatch, based out of Boston Medical Center (BMC), released a report this month which finds that experience of homelessness, even for a period as short as six-months, can have extreme long-term health effects for children. The researchers interviewed approximately 20,000 caregivers who work with children with a range of experiences of homelessness and found that children with an experience of homelessness of six-months or longer were at far greater risk of frequent hospitalization, being underweight, as well as having developmental delays.
