Abstract

Popular conceptions of homeless persons are often vivid, usually poignant, but rarely adequate. An outstretched hand at a subway entrance, an elderly woman pushing an overloaded cart, a bottle gang of disheveled alcoholics, a young family despairing in a motel room—all are images that represent part of the homelessness problem, but none captures fully the experiences or feelings of those who become homeless.
