Down ... but not out! a look at situational poverty( Visual )

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 67 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"For many Americans, the threat of sudden poverty has less to do with the nation's overall economy than it does with personal circumstances. This program discusses the hard facts of situational poverty with a focus on the four most common triggers: job loss, the fastest way to become impoverished; health issues, such as severe injury or long-term illness; the loss of a spouse through divorce or death; and natural disasters. The program also talks about where to turn to for help and provides supportive words of hope. People in the grip of situational poverty may be down, but they aren't out!"--DVD case

What poor child is this? : poverty and America's children( Visual )

3 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and held by 35 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"If poverty is a serpent, child poverty is its venom. And with an estimated 12 million American children suffering from economic hardship, even the wealthiest society on earth cannot escape the poisonous effects of poverty. This program examines child poverty in the U.S.-- its causes, its agents, and its human impact. Citing facts and findings that contradict the American ethos of upward mobility, the film lays bare the sad reality of what financial deprivation is doing to the nation's youngest people-- eroding family bonds, decreasing literacy, increasing health and addiction risks, raising the specter of mental illness, and putting children disturbingly close to criminal influences. Lack of school readiness (preparation for kindergarten) and poor academic achievement are also examined as factors in the perpetuation of the poverty cycle"--Container

This program analytically and sympathetically discusses the effects and implications of poverty, examining factors such as illiteracy, insufficient job skills, substance abuse, and crime. The phenomenon of multigenerational poverty is also addressed, underscoring the disturbing pattern of poverty begetting poverty. Interviews with impoverished people and those who reach out to them put a human face on a demographic group that lives below the radar of wealthy and middle-class Americans."--DVD case
Obvious poverty: America's homeless( Visual )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 28 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Stereotypes tell us it's easy to spot the homeless -- after all, life on the street tends to leave a mark on people. But is a "homeless profile" really meaningful? In today's economy a man in a business suit might well be living in his car; and besides, to those in society's upper echelons, homelessness is often invisible. This program offers a profound exploration of homelessness, focusing on factors like addiction, financial hardship, mental illness, domestic abuse, and the inability to transcend a criminal background. It also outlines methods for combating homelessness in communities and in American society. Interviews with homeless people bring a real-world understanding to the issues, shedding light on the job search frustrations, bureaucratic challenges, and lack of personal safety that go hand-in-hand with a shelterless existence.

The nouveau poor : a look at immigrant poverty( Visual )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 24 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The "golden door" exalted at the Statue of Liberty still beckons the world's poor. Once inside the U.S., however, most immigrants accept a lifestyle that is anything but glittering. This program reveals the conditions in which an American newcomer, legal or not, struggles to earn a living, save money, and meet basic needs. Featuring interviews with numerous immigrants from Latin America and Africa, the film illustrates their experiences with entrenched racism, unfairly low wages, the lack of a social safety net, few if any economic resources, and crowded, substandard housing. These individuals also describe the goals that drive them-education and a better future for their loved ones-and the equally important work ethic with which the majority of immigrants approach their jobs. Several scholars contribute their expertise as we. A part of the series Poverty in America
