The Homeless Health Initiative (HHI) continues its collaboration with the Children’s Work Group-Early Childhood (CWGEC) committee and the Building Early Links to Learning (BELL) team. CWGEC is the only forum in Philadelphia for provider staff, city departments, funders, healthcare providers, early childhood educators, advocates and other professionals to discuss and advocate for the needs of young children who experience homelessness. HHI has worked closely with the CWGEC and BELL team to encourage developmentally supportive environments for children living in shelter, including the promotion of breastfeeding-friendly shelters.
