HCPP programs nurture healthy child development and reduce the effects of trauma for children in temporary housing programs in Washington, DC.

The Homeless Children's Playtime Project will serve 500 children and their families this year in five shelters and transitional living sites in Washington, DC. For children who may have lost everything, a safe place to play and learn is essential to healing from trauma and maintaining a childhood.

The output of Playtime is JOY!
