About this title


Discusses the problem of homelessness in the United States, with a particular emphasis on homeless families, including a listing of organizations that help the homeless.

From Booklist:

Gr. 6-9. Homelessness has many causes, primarily the fact that "there are more poor people than there are affordable homes." Accordingly, McCauslin surveys and analyzes the decline of affordable housing units in the past few decades, along with other economic and employment factors that have resulted in growing numbers of homeless in the U.S. This slim volume balances facts, statistics, and engaging vignettes as it considers the factors leading to homelessness, the lives of homeless children, and the vicious circle of crime, danger, and disease as attendant problems. Unfortunately, cartoon drawings introducing each chapter give a cluttered effect to the design; the black-and-white photos generally do not reflect enough racial diversity; and the "glossary/index" is really just a glossary. Still, the book, which is part of the uneven Update series, makes a good introduction to the subject, especially for middle-school students, because it presents complex information in manageable doses of well-written prose. Sources for further information are appended. Anne O'Malley
