Social Work, v36 n4 p288-93 Jul 1991
Examined 125 case records from public agency and 157 case records from private agency in Chicago, Illinois. Findings suggest that elderly people, particularly elderly women, are emerging as newest group caught in widening net of homelessness. This group does not fit stereotypes attributed to homeless population; nevertheless, elderly people are at high risk and need protective services. (Author/NB)
