Summary

First published in 1990, this book emerged from the author’s experiences talking to homeless women and her desire to bring these problems to light along with the social injustice that often underlies them. The book also describes being "at risk": a paycheck, widowhood, or unfair divorce settlement away from sleeping in a car, living in malls and parks, "dining" in grocery stores. The author intends to raise awareness, participation and proposes solutions that do not simply beg more government funded shelters but rather foster self-sufficient living and working by raising self-esteem and community spirit. This book will be of interest to students of sociology.
