Homeless Prenatal Program (HPP) is a family resource center dedicated to breaking the cycle of childhood poverty. HPP assists clients with housing, prenatal and parenting support, domestic violence, substance abuse, family unification, access to technology, and financial issues, including emergency support of basic needs. Thousands of families turn to HPP each year; as a result, over 90 percent of the infants born to clients are healthy and drug-free, hundreds of families escape homelessness and many others have seen their incomes climb after participating in the organization’s financial stability programs. More than half of all HPP staff members are former clients, offering newcomers proof that investments made in parents can break the cycle of childhood poverty.
