Community Response to Residential Services for the Psycho-Socially Disabled: Preliminary Results of a National Survey.
Piasecki, Joseph R.
Four hundred seventy-two residential facilities across the U.S., serving mentally ill, alcoholics, and other disability groups, reported their experience with community opposition. Residential programs for offenders encountered opposition more frequently. However, for all types of facilities, attempts to occupy sites in residential neighborhoods, as opposed to commercial zones, more often encountered hostility. Results focused on the incidence and sources of opposition and reviewed strategies deployed to meet community opposition. (SBH)
