Children who are homeless or who live in precarious housing consistently fare worse on health, developmental, and academic issues than their better-housed peers. Home ownership reduces the transmission of intergenerational poverty, promotes educational attainment, and increases parental satisfaction, happiness, and well-being. This special issue of Child Welfare depicts the intersection of housing and child well-being. It draws attention to America's affordable housing crisis, making clear and candid links between housing stability and child well-being. Most important, it includes concrete solutions and practical information for professionals on how to develop the partnerships necessary to provide for the housing needs of children and families.
