Homelessness and its Consequences

Redlener, Irwin E.

Understanding the implications and meaningful details of homelessness helps to clarify the health care challenges that homeless people and the service providers who care for them face on a daily basis. This is not just a matter of very disadvantaged children who need medical care and a food pantry; it is also about families who live in a state of social isolation and excessive risk physically and emotionally.
