Welfare reform has been a key political theme in national policy in recent years, making the headlines day after day as politicians and legislators have argued heatedly about the costs of public social welfare programs, the characteristics of the people who use the programs, and the effectiveness of efforts to assist poor and working people. This up-to-date volume begins by discussing the roots and nature of this debate. It then presents a chronology of key events in the history of U.S. social welfare programs; biographical sketches of key participants in the debate; facts and statistics about welfare programs; documents and reports; a summary of relevant litigation issues; lists of print and nonprint resources; a directory of organizations; a glossary; and an index.

Modern homelessness : a reference handbook by Mary Ellen Hombs( Book )

8 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 335 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Overview: Focusing on the last decade, Modern Homelessness: A Reference Handbook examines the issue in the United States and in other nations that have adopted new strategies to address homelessness-and achieved notable results in preventing and ending it. The handbook covers the unprecedented reductions first announced in 2007 and the crucial shifts in strategy and investment, and the results that brought them about. These fundamental changes are analyzed to identify the factors that proved most effective in altering the national and local dialogue and response relative to this daunting issue. In addition to a brief history of homelessness in contemporary times, the handbook examines key developments of the past decade in research, policy, housing models, and service delivery that have been shown to decrease homelessness. These include active partnership among the governments of the United States, Canada, England, Australia, New Zealand, and others that moved the discussion in a new direction. The story is brought up to date with a consideration of the effects of the 2008 economic crisis
