The United States is still the land of opportunity, but many of our citizens have been left behind—living in cars, back alleys, abandoned buildings, and shelters provided for people who are homeless. Who are these people who are homeless in America? Blake Barrow answered the call of God to leave a successful career as a trial lawyer and run the Rescue Mission of El Paso, a Christian shelter for homeless men, women, and children. Stories From the Shelter is his account of the people he grew to love who came to the Rescue Mission for help over the last sixteen years. He shares his personal successes and frustrations, while describing the people at the Mission and the problems that caused them to be homeless. Divided into short, quick-reading, independent chapters, Stories not only describes the people he encountered in the shelter but also chronicles his own spiritual journey of following God's call from lawyer to missionary.

This study examines the relationship between income and housing assistance programs. The welfare system, through the explicit and implicit shelter allowances that welfare recipients receive as part of their public assistance benefits, spends at least $10 billion a year on housing assistance. The Department of Housing and Urban Development spends a similar amount. Yet, the two streams of government financing for low income housing are uncoordinated and frequently overlapping. Part 1 presents new evidence on both the nature and the impact of this two-pronged approach to providing shelter assistance to the poor. It compares the level of benefits available to households receiving various combinations of aid, and documents the housing outcomes that are produced by the two systems of shelter support. It includes the following chapters: (1) Executive Summary; (2) Introduction; (3) Shelter Allowances Under the Welfare System; (4) The Impact of the Two-Pronged System; and (5) Directions for Future Policy. Part 2 presents detailed statistics on estimated shelter allowances for each of the 50 states and the District of Columbia under the following programs: (1) Aid to Families with Dependent Children (AFDC); (2) Supplemental Security Income (SSI); and (3) General Assistance (GA). Extensive statistical data are included on 42 tables, two graphs, and six appendices. (FMW)

This book, full of data analyses, illustrations, graphics, and charts, provides a unique look at the realities of homelessness. Instead of focusing on major urban cities, the research in this book concentrates on a county in transformation from rural to urban. In its study of Harford County, Maryland, the book reveals in depth the causes and characterization of the homeless, while providing solutions to the problem. The author goes back to study changes in the homeless population and argues that the causes of homelessness have changed very little throughout the years. He lists some of the causes as changing economic structure, political conflict, unskilled populations, overcrowding, and substance abuse. Marsh also looks at fluxes in the character and demographics of society in order to show how the homeless population has changed from white male adults to minorities (mostly African American), women, and children. Contents: List of Graphs/Illustrations and Charts; Foreword; Preface; Acknowledgements; Introduction; Homelessness and Shelter: Theories, Definitions, and Historical Perspectives; Survey Design and Analysis of Data Research Design/Data Collection for Homeless Clients; Homeless Demographic Characteristics, Needs, and Analysis of Data; The Faith Community: Communities of Faith Survey Design; Research Design/Data Collection for the Service Providers; Homeless Program; Findings and Recommendations; Index.
