Wright, James D.; Lam, Julie A.
Social Policy, v17 n4 p48-53 Spr 1987
The homeless are becoming increasingly female, non-White, and youthful. The problem is a housing shortage complicated by poverty as shown in data from 12 cities where declines in low-income housing accompanied increases in the number of poor people. More housing must be provided even before other social ills are addressed. (VM)
