Ending Homelessness: Why We Haven’t, How We CanDonald W. Burnes and David L. DiLeo, editors
Despite billions of government dollars spent in the attempt, we are no closer than we were three decades ago to solving the problem of homelessness. Why?
Tackling these questions, the authors of Ending Homelessness explore the complicated and often dysfunctional relationship between efforts to address homelessness and the realities on the street.
