Turner Construction New York BU wrote -'One of the most devastating consequences of family homelessness is the impact it has on a child's education. The stigma of being homeless weighs heavily on these children. If a child goes to school without a backpack or with few supplies, other children will take notice and see a child 'in need' rather than just a new, potential friend.'
