Riassunto: Examines the problem of homelessness in the United States, including its causes and effects, society's responsibilities, and government and private assistance programs.
From School Library Journal:
Grade 6-9-This title addresses the questions of who should take responsibility for assisting homeless people and how to improve the situation in the U.S. A short history of the demographics of the homeless from the Depression years to the present examines the effects of public policy on them. Nichelason does a commendable job of presenting the complex and varied causes of homelessness and cites individual examples. Through text and photographs (reproduced in black and white and full color), she provides a stark look at the everyday realities these people face. Past and present welfare and assistance programs offered by government and nonprofit agencies are described, and suggested solutions are examined. The author also looks at public attitudes and measures taken by local governments in reaction to negative social effects (panhandling, substance abuse, loitering, and shanty towns). The well-written text is followed by a list of organizations that work on behalf of the homeless and an extensive bibliography. Comparable titles include Elaine Landau's The Homeless (Messner, 1987), which contains interviews with homeless individuals, and Margaret Fagan's The Fight Against Homelessness (Watts, 1990), which gives an overview of the worldwide scope of this problem.
