Opening Slide
[TEXT] Every year, more than 2 million children in America experience homelessness.

Children playing.
[PARTICIPANT] Look at you building.

Jamila Larson, Executive Director
[JAMILA VOICEOVER] Children and families are considered the hidden homeless because you don't see them on park benches.
Slide
[TEXT] The Homeless Children’s Playtime Project provides children and youth with guided play, field trips, healthy snacks, and family support services.
[JAMILA] By most systems that are serving the homeless population, homelessness is seen as a housing issue, it's not seen as a child development issue.
Children playing.
[JAMILA VOICEOVER] With increasing proportion of the homeless population being children, their needs are going unseen. We really want to give every child that we serve, infants through teens, a time and space to call their own, and play is really how children recover from the stress of homelessness.
