Babies, Toddlers, Pre-school Kids...
Yes! Hundreds of thousands...
and few people know.
That's why HEAR US created
an 11-min. video
(watch on YouTube)
focusing on how to
help 'the Littles.'
Read what was said about Littlest Nomads:
I first would like to say how moved and impressed I was by the ‘Littlest Nomads’ film! I was so ecstatic to see a message that conveys the importance of recognizing these children! The film is brilliantly done and the language used, along with the video shots of the kiddos really emphasize the importance of reaching these young children at the most vulnerable times in their lives. Thank you for generating this message!

Over 3 million children in the United States are homeless, including hundreds of thousands of Littlest Nomads.
Babies, toddlers, pre-school kids spend their most vital developmental years in the worst possible situation--homeless.
HEAR US has teamed up with respected national expert Sarah Benjamin to film and produce Littlest Nomads, a short film highlighting the plight of these little ones.

Comments from those who've attended Littlest Nomad presentations:
"We have no shelter in my community and no low-income housing available. 700 people on the waiting list. Only 2 Early Head Start classes. Very few centers that take infants. Long waiting lists for subsidized child care and regular Head Start."
"Parenting support is available at the Urban Core. Support services are spotty in my suburban/rural setting."
"Support services are not always aware of homeless 0-5 yos unless there are older siblings in school."
"This group of homeless population do not have the appropriate 'voice' for their needs. They get lost in the shuffle of survival mode."
"I am embarassed by my own lack of knowledge on the services that my community offers to homeless 'little people.'"
