Most widely held works by Susan J Popkin
Moving to opportunity : the story of an American experiment to fight ghetto poverty by Xavier de Souza Briggs( )

15 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 1,096 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Launched in 1994, the Moving to Opportunity program took a largely untested approach to poverty: helping families move from high-poverty, inner-city public housing to low-poverty neighborhoods. The book emphasizes the voices and choices of the program's participants but also rigorously analyzes the changing structures of regional opportunity and constraint that shaped the fortunes of those who "signed up." It shines a light on the hopes, surprises, achievements, and limitations of a major social experiment.--

No simple solutions : transforming public housing in Chicago by Susan J Popkin( Book )

4 editions published between 2016 and 2017 in English and held by 210 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In [this book], Sue Popkin tells the story of how an ambitious--and risky--social experiment affected the lives of the people it was ultimately intended to benefit: the residents who had suffered through the worst days of crime, decay, and rampant mismanagement of the Chicago Housing Authority (CHA), and now had to face losing the only home many of them had known. The stories Popkin tells in this book offer important lessons not only for Chicago, but for the many other American cities still grappling with the legacy of racial segregation and failed federal housing policies, making this book a vital resource for city planners and managers, urban development professionals, and anti-poverty activists."--

Program on Neighborhoods and Youth Development Understanding How Place Matters for Kids by Susan J Popkin( Book )

2 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

A central goal of U.S. social welfare policy is to ensure that all children have the opportunity to reach their full potential as productive adults. Yet it is increasingly clear that where children live plays a central role in determining their life chances. This paper provides an overview of The Urban Institute's Program on Neighborhoods and Youth Development, which is dedicated to understanding the relationships between neighborhood-level factors and the well-being and development of children and youth and identifying and evaluating place-based, community-wide strategies to help children grow up to reach their full potential as adults. Specifically, this paper first presents a brief overview of theory and research on how social and physical context affects the life chances of children and youth. It then discusses the goals and initial research agenda for the Program on Neighborhoods and Youth Development, including (1) better understanding the dimensions of neighborhood environments that lead to negative outcomes for children to develop targeted interventions; (2) drawing on lessons from our research on housing and community-based interventions to inform policy initiatives aimed at improving outcomes for youth, such as Choice Neighborhoods and Promise Zones; and (3) using primary and secondary data at the local and national levels to explore how place affects development, health, and risky behavior for children and youth. (Contains 1 note.)
