Be a Part of Our Breaking Barriers Breakfast!

Breaking Barriers Breakfast - October 17th

“Children experiencing homelessness were more often hungry, sick, and worried where their next meal and bed would come from; they wondered if they would have a roof over their heads at night and what would happen to their families. Children often developed more slowly. Many struggled in school, missing days, repeating grades, and even dropping out of school entirely.”

– Megan Sandel and Matthew Desmond, “Investing in Housing for Health Improves Both Mission and Margin.” 2017

Housing Families is hosting a Breaking Barriers Breakfast on Wednesday, October 17th. This event will consist of a panel discussion featuring two prominent physicians, Dr. Ann C. Wu, Associate Professor, Department of Population Medicine, at Harvard Medical School and Harvard Pilgrim Health Care Institute and Dr. Megan T. Sandel, MD, Associate Professor of Pediatrics at Boston University Schools of Medicine and Public Health, along with HFI’s Barbara Schwartz, who has 28 years experience working with homeless children. The panel will speak about the correlation between children’s health and housing.  We are pleased to invite you to be a sponsor of our 2018 Breaking Barriers Breakfast. This breakfast is one of our new series of events to build awareness and raise funds to support our mission of working to end family homelessness. The event will be moderated by Nathan Lamb, former editor of the Malden Observer.
