Why We Haven't, How We CanBook - 2016
The number of people experiencing homelessness has not changed significantly in the past 35 years¿despite billions of dollars spent at the federal, state, and local levels. Why aren¿t we closer to the goal of ending homelessness? In Ending Homelessness: Why We Haven¿t, How We Can, leading scholars and practitioners explore the complicated, and often mismatched, relationship between efforts to address homelessness and the dynamics of this persistent, yet subtly shifting social problem. The authors examine the politics and policies of the past three decades¿wrestling with practical, cultural, and economic questions alike¿to shed light on barriers to and opportunities for addressing a chronic challenge.
