Dr. Herbers received a grant from the National Science Foundation. "This project will investigate developmental processes of risk and resilience among infants whose families are homeless and very low income. The project will contribute to our limited knowledge of well-being of homeless infants. Infants are overrepresented among children experiencing homelessness, but underrepresented in the research literature. Furthermore, the project will expand our understanding of unique risks associated with homelessness compared to risks of poverty more generally, and will inform efforts on the part of service providers and policymakers to support healthy development of infants and families through parenting programs. In addition, the project will involve the design and evaluation of a child development curriculum for family housing providers; this curriculum will be delivered by graduate students, enhancing the students’ education while simultaneously enhancing knowledge of developmental science among service providers who interact daily with young children and families experiencing homelessness."
