Goal 4: Safe and Secure Housing


Babies, toddlers, young children, and their families across North Carolina will have access to safe, secure, and affordable housing.

2025 Target

Part 1) By 2025, decrease the percentage of children across North Carolina under age six experiencing homelessness by 10% from 26,198 to 23,578, according to data from the Administration for Children and Families (ACF). 26

Part 2) By 2025, decrease the number of children kindergarten through third grade enrolled in NC public schools who are experiencing homelessness by 10% from 9,970 to 8,973, according to data provided by the NC Department of Public Instruction (NCDPI).

*In setting these targets, we acknowledge that current counts are likely to be an underestimation of homelessness among young children and that rates could increase as identification methods improve.
