The United Nations calls failure of the U.S. to address the homeless crisis ‘shameful.’The 2009 census puts the number of homeless Americans at 14.3 million! And once homeless they remain homeless. Though homeless people are those in the most critical and desperate need of social services, our society has established policies that prevent the homeless from receiving disability benefits, employment, housing, mental health services, medical services, legal aid and virtually every kind of essential support. We have excluded homeless people from being part of human society, precisely because they are homeless. They have become pariahs, outcasts, a class of untouchables, in this land where all men are created equal.The homeless crisis is not just ‘shameful,’ it is a national tragedy, our national disgrace. As Americans we have lost all claim to moral supremacy so long as this inequality exists.This book is the face and the voice of the homeless, a window on their world.
