A Shelter is Not a Home - Or is It?
In this book, the authors tell the story of family homelessness in New York City while highlighting what has been learned over the last twenty years. Through the exploration of the evolution of New York City's shelter system, this book discusses the permanency of shelters on the poverty landscape. The authors suggest that shelters are a surrogate for traditional low-income housing, and offer a blueprint for successfully moving families out of homelessness. (Authors)
