Who becomes homeless? Why do people become homeless? How do we end homelessness? And how do we prevent it? Join us for a conversation about these questions with Marybeth Shinn, co-author (with Jill Khadduri) of In the Midst of Plenty: Homelessness and What To Do About It, recently published by Wiley-Blackwell and David Luberoff, Deputy Director of the Joint Center for Housing Studies. In the book, Shinn and Khadduri, who are two of the nation’s leading experts on homelessness, show that we know how to end homelessness—if we devote the necessary resources to doing so. Drawing on a comprehensive look at relevant research they provide guidance on how to end homelessness for people who experience it and how to prevent so many people from reaching the point where they have no alternative to sleeping on the street or in emergency shelters.
