The homelessness response system in the United States is dominated by
the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). HUD’s
definition of homelessness, program models, metrics, data, approaches,
and goals have overshadowed those of other federal agencies. This policy
brief argues that children, youth, and families experiencing
homelessness have been poorly served by HUD’s dominance, especially
during the COVID-19 pandemic.The paper draws from research, policy analyses, and testimonies of
parents, service providers, and educators to make the case for a
reimagined homelessness response that is child-centered and oriented
toward long-term goals of economic independence, health, and wellness.
In response to the unprecedented educational challenges created by
school closures due to the COVID-19 pandemic, more than 90 per cent of
countries have implemented some form of remote learning policy. This
factsheet estimates the potential reach of digital and
broadcast remote learning responses, finding that at least 463 million
students around the globe remain cut off from education, mainly due to a
lack of remote learning policies or lack of equipment needed for
learning at home. This data primarily stems from the UNESCO-UNICEF-World
Bank Survey on National Education Responses to COVID-19 School Closures
(June-July 2020), as well as household microdata from sources like
Multiple Indicator Cluster Surveys (MICS), Demographic and Health
UNICEF Innocenti's Children and COVID-19 Library is a database collecting research from around the world on COVID-19 and its impacts on children and adolescents.
