Homeless families visit Children's Museum of Manhattan

Homeless families enjoyed a special day at the Children's Museum of Manhattan. A small group of moms and their children came to a room at the museum, a place to learn, a place to grow, and it's safe. The mothers are all homeless and live with their kids at a shelter just a few blocks away.

The visit starts with arts and crafts. The mothers sit side by side with a social worker and talk about their week. The children come to learn and have one on one time with teachers, all for free.

The mothers also have alone time. They meet with writers who help them get in touch with their feelings. On this day, they wrote about something they're afraid of. At the end of the 9 month program, all of writings are compiled into a book.
