The program will result in: * Increased acuity of care to meet complex health and social needs. * Holistic, advanced and comprehensive assessments. * Extended collaborative care services eg. longer support and consultation/ treatment times. * Supported interdisciplinary referrals addressing the multimodal interventions required by children This structured, community embedded, intervention by a paediatric ED nurse practitioner (NP) with the skills to provide an advanced paediatric lull health assessment of the children aged 0-18 living in housing instability provides linkages to early intervention mental and physical health services.
