Understanding Homelessness with Homeless Prenatal Program
Stanford Computational Policy Lab presents the second event in our Community Leaders Speaker Series: Understanding Homelessness.

Homeless Prenatal Program (http://www.homelessprenatal.org/) empowers homeless and low-income families, particularly mothers motivated by pregnancy and parenthood, to find within themselves the strength and confidence they need to transform their lives. Serving over 3,500 low-income and homeless families annually, HPP provides a variety of programs and services to help families become healthy, stable and self-sufficient. The first agency in San Francisco to hire former clients as staff, HPP’s evolution has been guided by the community it serves. More than half of HPP’s immensely talented staff of 90 is formerly homeless mothers and graduates of the agency’s year-long Community Health Worker Program, which trains women for careers in the nonprofit sector.

Join us in welcoming Executive Director Martha Ryan, who will share with us the work HPP does, the types of issues facing the low-income and homeless families they’ve worked with, and what she sees as the some of the most promising pathways forward.

Who: Martha Ryan, Executive Director of HPP

What: A discussion (presentation + Q&A) of how homelessness and housing instability impact families, pregnant mothers, and mothers with young children; of how HPP, in partnership with their families, is working to break the cycles of childhood poverty; and of how we can support those efforts.

When: Thursday January 30, 2020, 4:00-5:30pm

Why: "Because your liberation is bound up with mine...let us work together“ (Lilla Watson)
