Meeting the Needs of Homeless Children Who Live in Temporary Housing.
McClain, Deborah
This study investigated the strengths homeless children exhibit. Homeless children living in shelters and children of the same peer group living in low income housing were interviewed about home activities, interests, abilities, talents, character strengths, autonomous behavior, and interactions with adults. All children were selected from first, second and third grades of an inner city public school. Findings indicated that many of homeless children do exhibit a high degree of independence. The findings also highlighted many of the emotional, psychological, and learning problems that homeless children endure living in shelters. (JPB)
