dc.description.abstractCurrently, 3.5 million people experience a lack of stable living conditions in the U.S. Families with children account for over 35% of the homeless population. As the present economy continues to struggle, this growing sector will result in more families losing their homes. The increasing volume of the homeless population, along with the fact that severe poverty and homelessness pose significant risks to child development, indicates that homelessness is a pressing social concern. This literature review seeks to explore the current research that exists pertaining to physical, psychological, social, and academic issues that impact children experiencing homelessness. Prevention and intervention strategies for school counselors are then explored in order to promote academic and emotional success for children who are homeless. Finally, recommendations for future research are presented.en
