Notes

Abstract: The government has painted a sordid picture of the condition of homelessness in the United States, and for the past fifty years, the responsibility for taking care of the homeless has shifted back and forth from the citizens to the federal government. Nobody, it seems, wants to deal with such a vague, messy problem. Some groups advocate the building of many new homeless shelters and transitional housing for the people who live on the streets. Up until now, however, very few studies have been done where homeless individuals were asked for their stories and opinions. This study explores the viewpoint of homeless individuals and what they have to offer to the culture of the Denton, Texas, community as well as the socioeconomic impact they have. A meta-analysis will review data from previous research, and interviews will offer first-hand insight into the plight of the homeless.
