The Montefiore community children's project: a controlled study of cognitive and emotional problems of homeless mothers and children. (1/676)

OBJECTIVES: This study compares the prevalence of emotional, academic, and cognitive impairment in children and mothers living in the community with those living in shelters for the homeless. METHOD: In New York City, 82 homeless mothers and their 102 children, aged 6 to 11, recruited from family shelters were compared to 115 nonhomeless mothers with 176 children recruited from classmates of the homeless children. Assessments included standardized tests and interviews. RESULTS: Mothers in shelters for the homeless showed higher rates of depression and anxiety than did nonhomeless mothers. Boys in homeless shelters showed higher rates of serious emotional and behavioral problems. Both boys and girls in homeless shelters showed more academic problems than did nonhomeless children. CONCLUSION: Study findings suggest a need among homeless children for special attention to academic problems that are not attributable to intellectual deficits in either children or their mothers. Although high rates of emotional and behavioral problems characterized poor children living in both settings, boys in shelters for the homeless may be particularly in need of professional attention.  (+info)

Disease patterns of the homeless in Tokyo. (2/676)

In recent years, homelessness has been recognized as a growing urban social problem in various countries throughout the world. The health problems of the homeless are considerable. The purpose of this study was to elicit, with sociodemographic profiles, the disease patterns among Tokyo's homeless. The subjects were 1,938 men who stayed at a welfare institution from 1992 to 1996. Diagnosed diseases/injuries and sociodemographic profiles were analyzed. The disease patterns of the homeless were compared to those of the male general population. Of the subjects, 8.3% were admitted to the hospital; 64.0% received outpatient care. Their observed morbidity rates by disease category were greater than those of the male general population in both Japan and Tokyo. Comorbidity of alcoholic psychosis/alcohol-dependent syndrome to both liver disease and pulmonary tuberculosis were greater than the average (P < .01). Construction work brought a higher risk of pulmonary tuberculosis (odds ratio = 2.0) and dorsopathies (odds ratio = 1.4) than did other jobs (P < .05). Disease patterns among the homeless in Tokyo were characterized by alcoholic psychosis/alcohol-dependence syndrome; liver disease; pulmonary tuberculosis; diabetes mellitus; fractures, dislocations, sprains, strains; hypertension; and cerebrovascular disease. Although the sociodemographic backgrounds of Tokyo's homeless have become more diverse, the principal occupation of the homeless was unskilled daily construction work, which underlay the characteristics of their disease patterns.  (+info)

Improving access to disability benefits among homeless persons with mental illness: an agency-specific approach to services integration. (3/676)

OBJECTIVES: This study evaluated a joint initiative of the Social Security Administration (SSA) and the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) to improve access to Social Security disability benefits among homeless veterans with mental illness. METHODS: Social Security personnel were colocated with VA clinical staff at 4 of the VA's Health Care for Homeless Veterans (HCHV) programs. Intake assessment data were merged with SSA administrative data to determine the proportion of veterans who filed applications and who received disability awards at the 4 SSA-VA Joint Outreach Initiative sites (n = 6709) and at 34 comparison HCHV sites (n = 27 722) during the 2 years before and after implementation of the program. RESULTS: During the 2 years after the initiative began, higher proportions of veterans applied for disability (18.9% vs 11.1%; P < .001) and were awarded benefits (11.4% vs 7.2%, P < .001) at SSA-VA Joint Initiative sites. CONCLUSION: A colocation approach to service system integration can improve access to disability entitlements among homeless persons with mental illness. Almost twice as many veterans were eligible for this entitlement as received it through a standard outreach program.  (+info)

Mortality among homeless shelter residents in New York City. (4/676)

OBJECTIVES: This study examined the rates and predictors of mortality among sheltered homeless men and women in New York City. METHODS: Identifying data on a representative sample of shelter residents surveyed in 1987 were matched against national mortality records for 1987 through 1994. Standardized mortality ratios were computed to compare death rates among homeless people with those of the general US and New York City populations. Logistic regression analysis was used to examine predictors of mortality within the homeless sample. RESULTS: Age-adjusted death rates of homeless men and women were 4 times those of the general US population and 2 to 3 times those of the general population of New York City. Among homeless men, prior use of injectable drugs, incarceration, and chronic homelessness increased the likelihood of death. CONCLUSIONS: For homeless shelter users, chronic homelessness itself compounds the high risk of death associated with disease/disability and intravenous drug use. Interventions must address not only the health conditions of the homeless but also the societal conditions that perpetuate homelessness.  (+info)

Experiences and attitudes of residents and students influence voluntary service with homeless populations. (5/676)

OBJECTIVE: To assess the impact of two programs at the University of Pittsburgh, one that requires and one that encourages volunteer activity. In the program that requires primary care interns to spend 15 hours in a homeless clinic, we measured volunteer service after the requirement was fulfilled. In the program that encourages and provides the structure for first- and second-year medical students to volunteer, we assessed correlates of volunteering. MEASUREMENTS AND MAIN RESULTS: When primary care interns were required to spend time at homeless clinics, all (13/13) volunteered to work at the same clinic in subsequent years. Categorical interns without this requirement were less likely to volunteer (24/51; chi2 = 12.7, p >. 001). Medical students who volunteered were more likely to be first-year students, have previously volunteered in a similar setting, have positive attitudes toward caring for indigent patients, and have fewer factors that discouraged them from volunteering (p <. 01 for all) than students who did not volunteer. CONCLUSIONS: Volunteering with underserved communities during medical school and residency is influenced by previous experiences and, among medical students, year in school. Medical schools and residency programs have the opportunity to promote volunteerism and social responsibility through mentoring and curricular initiatives.  (+info)

Culture of Bartonella quintana and Bartonella henselae from human samples: a 5-year experience (1993 to 1998). (6/676)

Bartonella quintana and Bartonella henselae are fastidious gram-negative bacteria responsible for bacillary angiomatosis, trench fever, cat scratch disease, and endocarditis. During a 5-year period, we received 2,043 samples for culture of Bartonella sp. We found Bartonella sp. to be the etiologic agent in 38 cases of endocarditis, 78 cases of cat scratch disease, 16 cases of bacteremia in homeless people, and 7 cases of bacillary angiomatosis. We correlated the results of positive cultures with the clinical form of the disease, type of sample, culture procedure, PCR-based genomic detection, and antibody determination. Seventy-two isolates of B. quintana and nine isolates of B. henselae from 43 patients were obtained. Sixty-three of the B. quintana isolates and two of the B. henselae isolates, obtained from patients with no prior antibiotic therapy, were stably subcultured. The sensitivity of culture was low when compared with that of PCR-based detection methods in valves of patients with endocarditis (44 and 81%, respectively), skin biopsy samples of patients with bacillary angiomatosis (43 and 100%, respectively), and lymph nodes of cat scratch disease (13 and 30%, respectively). Serological diagnosis was also more sensitive in cases of endocarditis (97%) and cat scratch disease (90%). Among endocarditis patients, the sensitivity of the shell vial culture assay was 28% when inoculated with blood samples and 44% when inoculated with valvular biopsy samples, and the sensitivity of both was significantly higher than that of culture on agar (5% for blood [P = 0.045] and 4% for valve biopsy samples [P < 0.0005]). The most efficient culture procedure was the subculture of blood culture broth into shell vials (sensitivity, 71%). For patients with endocarditis, previous antibiotic therapy significantly affected results of blood culture; no patient who had been administered antibiotics yielded a positive blood culture, whereas 80% of patients with no previous antibiotic therapy yielded positive blood cultures (P = 0.0006). Previous antibiotic therapy did not, however, prevent isolation of Bartonella sp. from cardiac valves but did prevent the establishment of strains, as none of the 15 isolates from treated patients could be successfully subcultured. For the diagnosis of B. quintana bacteremia in homeless people, the efficiency of systematic subculture of blood culture broth onto agar was higher than that of direct blood plating (respective sensitivities, 98 and 10% [P < 10(-7)]). Nevertheless, both procedures are complementary, since when used together their sensitivity reached 100%. All homeless people with positive blood cultures had negative serology. The isolation rate of B. henselae from PCR-positive lymph nodes, in patients with cat scratch disease, was significantly lower than that from valves of endocarditis patients and skin biopsy samples from bacillary angiomatosis patients (13 and 33%, respectively [P = 0.084]). In cases of bacillary angiomatosis for which an agent was identified to species level, the isolation rate of B. henselae was lower than the isolation rate of B. quintana (28 and 64%, respectively [P = 0.003]). If culture is to be considered an efficient tool for the diagnosis of several Bartonella-related diseases, methodologies need to be improved, notably for the recovery of B. henselae from lymph nodes of patients with cat scratch disease.  (+info)

Outcome of long stay psychiatric patients resettled in the community: prospective cohort study. (7/676)

OBJECTIVE: To examine the outcome of a population of long stay psychiatric patients resettled in the community. DESIGN: Prospective study with 5 year follow up. SETTING: Over 140 residential settings in north London. SUBJECTS: 670 long stay patients from two London hospitals (Friern and Claybury) discharged to the community from 1985 to 1993. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: Continuity and quality of residential care, readmission to hospital, mortality, crime, and vagrancy. RESULTS: Of the 523 patients who survived the 5 year follow up period, 469 (89.6%) were living in the community by the end of follow up, 310 (59.2%) in their original community placement. A third (210) of all patients were readmitted at least once. Crime and homelessness presented few problems. Standardised mortality ratios for the group were comparable with those reported for similar populations. CONCLUSIONS: When carefully planned and adequately resourced, community care for long stay psychiatric patients is beneficial to most individuals and has minimal detrimental effects on society.  (+info)

Serologic evidence of rickettsialpox (Rickettsia akari) infection among intravenous drug users in inner-city Baltimore, Maryland. (8/676)

We tested single serum samples from 631 intravenous (i.v.) drug users from inner-city Baltimore, Maryland for serologic evidence of exposure to spotted fever group rickettsiae. A total of 102 (16%) individuals had titers > or = 64 to Rickettsia rickettsii by an indirect immunofluorescence assay. Confirmation that infection was caused by R. akari was obtained by cross-adsorption studies on a subset of serum samples that consistently resulted in higher titers to R. akari than to R. rickettsii. Current i.v. drug use, increased frequency of injection, and shooting gallery use were significant risk factors for presence of group-specific antibodies reactive with R. rickettsii. There was a significant inverse association with the presence of antibodies reactive to R. rickettsii and antibodies reactive to the human immunodeficiency virus. This study suggests that i.v. drug users are at an increased risk for R. akari infections. Clinicians should be aware of rickettsialpox, as well as other zoonotic diseases of the urban environment, when treating i.v. drug users for any acute febrile illness of undetermined etiology.  (+info)

THURSDAY, April 23, 2020 (HealthDay News) -- Even at the beginning of April, large percentages of residents at U.S. homeless shelters were testing positive for the new coronavirus, studies show.. One study looked at the results of coronavirus testing conducted at homeless shelters in four American cities -- Atlanta, Boston, San Francisco and Seattle. Testing included almost 1,200 residents and 300 staffers and was done in late March and early April, according to a team led by Emily Mosites, from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.. The findings: In Boston, 36% of homeless shelter residents and 30% of staff tested positive for the new coronavirus; in San Francisco those numbers were 66% and 16%, respectively; and in Seattle infections were 17% for both residents and staff. Only in Atlanta was a relatively low percentage of infections observed -- 4% of residents and 2% of staff, although by now those numbers may have changed.. The CDC team acknowledged that their numbers may ...
Brooklyn District Attorney Eric Gonzalez today announced that a 31-year-old resident of an East New York homeless shelter has been arraigned on an indictment in which he is charged with attempted rape, sexual abuse, escape and other charges for allegedly attacking a shelter security guard while she was on-duty, and then escaping custody following his arrest.. District Attorney Gonzalez said, This defendant is alleged to have cruelly attacked a woman whose job was to keep him and other residents of the shelter safe. Thankfully other residents and DHS police bravely thwarted this violent attack. We will now seek to hold him accountable and secure justice for the victim.. The District Attorney identified the defendant as Jose Bisono-Torres, 31, formerly of 1000 Blake Avenue, a homeless shelter run by the Community Healthcare Network. He was arraigned yesterday before Brooklyn Supreme Court Justice John Ingram on an indictment in which he is charged with first-degree attempted rape, attempted ...
Utahs homeless advocates are celebrating a milestone in the fight to keep residents housed. During the past 10 years, the states chronically homeless population dropped from 2,000 to less than 200.. According to NPRs All Things Considered, chronically homeless are the most vulnerable amongst the homeless population. People are considered chronically homeless if they have been on the streets for more than a year or more than four times in the past three years; they also suffer from disabling conditions such as mental or physical illness or addiction. Chronically homeless make up 20 percent of the United States total homeless population.. Utahs success is attributed to the Housing First model, which focuses on housing the chronic homeless first and then provide them with services needed. Other keys to Utahs Housing First success include: the states total population is low; the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints supported the program; homeless advocates and agencies know and ...
Sonoma County officials said Thursday that 47 residents at the Sam Jones L. Hall homeless shelter in Santa Rosa tested positive for COVID-19.

06/06/2013 - Almost 25 percent of the U.S. homeless population is veterans. The Veterans Affairs Office projects that figure could rise to 50 percent in four years, said Rodger Ruge, a retired law enforcement officer, crisis counselor and author, during his Crisis Intervention Training: Putting a Face on Mental Illness sessions in Fort Bragg and Mendocino earlier this month.. Various reports yield a soup of percentages, ranging from 13 to 25 percent of the homeless population being veterans. However, reports from the Veterans Administration and from the National Coalition for the Homeless agree that veterans are over-represented in the homeless population.. That is a sobering statistic, Ruge said in a follow-up interview. It is for most people, because you start thinking about the impact of that. Why are these veterans falling through the cracks?. When you start seeing dysfunction at a government level like that, you start to realize that there is no help coming to the community. The ...
Anticipated Impacts on Veterans Healthcare. Ending homelessness among veterans is a major priority for VA. Veterans represent between one in four and one in three homeless adults. Almost 200,000 veterans are homeless each night. Rhode Island has the second highest per capita concentration of homeless persons in the United States and an estimated 2,000 homeless veterans. Half report unmet service needs related to substance use disorders. The VA is a major service provider to homeless persons and has developed innovative housing assistance programs. However, sobriety is required to access many housing services. Effective medication-assisted treatment for the alcohol-dependent, homeless population could improve their substance use, health care utilization and housing stability. If depot naltrexone is a useful tool for engaging alcohol-dependent, homeless veterans in effective treatment, a definitive study showing its effect would lead to fewer restrictions on depot naltrexone on the VA formulary, ...
Long Beach City Council had an unusually quiet night after more than a month of packed and contentious meetings about the state of the city. In the recent weeks where some items had over 60 speakers, Tuesdays meeting was notable for only having one issue which turned out speakers in the double digits.. That issue, Item 19, involved the relocation of a few tenants off of Atlantic Avenue by East 68 Street for the city to build a new homeless shelter. Flanked by the Artesia Freeway and the Los Angeles River in North East Long Beach, the principally concerned property is The College of Instrument Technology.. The 90-day notification is very stressful because we do not yet have a confirmed [relocation] site, said Arti Sutaria, the schools assistant director.. CIT specializes in training the homeless, unemployed and veterans to operate heavy machinery. School officials said they worry that the city is not doing enough to help relocate the facility which may jeopardize students and faculty ...

Homeless Shelter. May Be a Residence for Sex Offender Registration. Benjamin Batson was convicted at trial of failure to register as a sex offender because he had not checked in with the sheriffs office pursuant to RCW 9A.44.131(1)(d). He tried to arrest judgment, and was unsuccessful. Mr. Batson said there was insufficient evidence that he lacked a fixed residence, requiring him to check in with the local sheriff once a week. He appealed.. Mr. Batson had previously been convicted of a sex offense in Arizona. He lived in King County, Washington, at the time he allegedly failed to register. He pled guilty to failing to register on a previous occasion in 2011. Later, in December 2011, Mr. Batson registered with the King County Sheriffs Office, listing the St. Martin de Porres Shelter as his residence. He never provided any change of address.. Mr. Batson was again charged with failure to register in King County in 2013. The charging period was April 19, 2013 to September 8, 2013. The ...

This grounded theory study explored the experiences of formerly homeless individuals and families who have moved from homelessness into stable housing. This was an ethnographic study and involved the researcher staying in an east coast shelter where some of the formerly homeless participants had become staff members and reside. Data analysis was informed by dimensional analysis. Moving out of homelessness was the studies perspective. Findings of the study revealed the following dimensions that related the formerly homelesss experiences: (a)reacting to circumstances, or how they became homeless; (b)surviving as homeless, or how they lived while homeless; (c)crossing the fine, or what moved them to get out of the homeless life; (d)living past homelessness; and, (e)giving back. Findings of this study have implications for: (a)public policy making; (b)program development for homeless shelters; (c)health clinic staff that serve the homeless population; and, (d)future nursing research.
Abstract This study examined factors associated with the use of the Health Care for the Homeless Program and other health care services by homeless adults. A total of 941 homeless adults were identified in 52 soup kitchens in U.S. communities. Descriptive statistics and logistic regression models were applied. Among homeless adults, having dental problems was the most robust factor associated with their use of Health Care for the Homeless Program services (odds ratio [OR] = 2.50, 95 percent confidence interval [CI] = 1.44-4.32). Among homeless adults who did not visit Health Care for the Homeless Program services during last six months, the number of emergency room visits was the most powerful factor associated with their use of other health care services (OR = 1.15, 95 percent CI = 1.05-1.26). The results of the study can help health care providers better serve homeless adults to meet their health needs.. ...

bills, an addiction to alcohol may cause them to lose their housing. In fact, a study by the National Coalition for the Homeless reported that two-thirds of homeless individuals said that drugs or alcohol were a major reason why they became homeless.. The relationship of alcoholism to homeless people is reciprocal in that substance abuse can be a cause and effect of homelessness. When the limited resources a homeless individual has is expended on alcohol, maintaining stable housing becomes that much harder. This isnt helped by the stress and danger associated with homelessness which feeds back to the reliance on alcohol as a coping strategy. In fact, the tie between the homeless and alcoholism may be the fact that alcohol becomes a way to adapt to life on the streets.. For many homeless people, substance abuse co-occurs with some form of mental illness. People with untreated mental illnesses sometimes use alcohol to self- medicate. Homeless people with both substance disorders and mental ...

On Twitter over the weekend, someone tweeted a statement opining that people who donate to Occupy Wall Street but have never donated to a food pantry, soup kitchen or homeless shelter are hypocrites.. Yes, Twitter is the place where people spout all sorts of opinions. I should have just ignored it, but I replied that I found it hard to believe anyone in the US might not have donated to a food pantry at some point in time.. The person replied that yes, there are people who have never donated to a food pantry, soup kitchen or homeless shelter, either money or goods.. Why do I not believe this? Food donation is dear to my heart, and if you read The Boys Upstairs, you saw it there as well, but its not just my skewed perspective. Food pantry donations are ingrained in our society right now.

Family referrals are homeless families who struggle and have a connection to an agency, shelter or church. We look for those families who are struggling with homelessness. But moreso, we look for those who seem to be ready to take advantage of a 2-year period of financial and relational support. This is what the Home With Friends program is all about. This gives them the time and energy to get further education or training and increase their income. It also allows time to clean up their credit reports and stabilize other areas of their lives.. ...

The bill would also, commencing on July 1, 2019, require a hospital to maintain a log of homeless patients discharged and the destinations to which they were released after discharge, as specified, if any. The bill would specify how its provisions are to be construed in relation to local ordinances, codes, regulations, or orders related to the ...
Exposure to traumatic events may lead to mental health problems, such as post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). PTSD is a type of anxiety disorder that is characterized by the presence of persistent frightening thoughts and memories of the traumatic event. Additionally, people with PTSD often feel emotionally numb, and they may experience sleep problems or be easily startled. Homeless people, in particular, are at risk for experiencing a variety of traumas. Homeless women tend to experience more traumatic events and develop PTSD at higher rates than housed women. Although effective treatments for PTSD are available, homeless women are unlikely to seek them out. There is a need for PTSD treatment approaches that are specifically designed for these women. This study will develop a cognitive-behavioral therapy treatment that will be adapted to best serve the needs of homeless women. The study will then determine the therapys effectiveness in treating a group of homeless women with PTSD.. This ...

The purpose of this study was to examine factors associated with social support in a rural, homeless population. Ninety-six (N= 96) individuals voluntarily agreed to participate in an evaluation examining effectiveness of enhanced substance use and mental health services provided to homeless individuals. The primary variables of interest were: demographics, substance use, mental and physical health, and social support. We used bivariate analyses to examine the sample using two different indicators of past-thirty-day social support: (1) family/friend social support [no support/support] and (2) self-help group social support [no support groups/support groups]. We used two multivariate logistic regressions to examine the relationships between explanatory variables (demographics, substance use, and health) and the dependent variable social supports (i.e., family/friend support and self-help group support). Significant predictors of receiving family/friend social support were education and nonreligious self

TY - JOUR. T1 - Family histories and multiple transitions among homeless young adults. T2 - Pathways to homelessness. AU - Tyler, Kimberly A.. AU - Schmitz, Rachel M.. N1 - Funding Information: This research was funded by a Faculty Seed Grant awarded to the first author and by the National Institute of Mental Health ( MH 57110 ).. PY - 2013/10. Y1 - 2013/10. N2 - This study explored the early family histories of homeless young adults, the types and number of transitions they experienced, and their pathways to the street. Intensive qualitative interviews were audio taped and transcribed with 40 homeless young adults 19 to 21. years of age in the Midwest. Findings show that family backgrounds were generally characterized by substance use, child maltreatment, and witnessing violence, all of which provide social context for understanding why so many of these young people opted to leave home in search of an alternative living situation. The current findings also reveal that while some young adults ...

Homeless people have higher morbidity and mortality rates than the general population. Research has shown that cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death in older homeless adults. This study was undertaken to describe the prevalence of cardiovascular risk factors in the homeless population in Prague. Data was obtained from a cross-sectional study carried out in 2003. Body mass index (BMI), waist circumference (WC), total cholesterol (TC), triacylglycerides (TAG) and smoking habits were assessed. The homeless participants in the study were recruited from a homeless center run by a Prague charitable organization called Naděje (Hope) and at Pragues main railway station. Most participants were assessed at the Naděje center (134 persons) while the rest were assessed at Pragues Bulovka University Hospital (67 persons). A total of 201 homeless (174 males and 27 females) aged 19 - 70 years were examined. Mean values of BMI, WC, TC and TAG in homeless men and women were within normal limits.

10/09/2002]. Health officials in Dallas County, Texas, vaccinated about 1,500 homeless people against meningococcal meningitis, after a man who had been staying at one of the citys homeless shelters died from the disease last week. The source of the mans infection may have been another shelter resident, who was later hospitalized; the deceased man and others at the shelter were given antibiotics, but the drugs only protect against meningitis for a couple of weeks, according to county officials. Compared to 2001, when 37 cases of meningitis were recorded in Dallas County, there have only been 19 cases this year, although two of those 19 people died and four patients were homeless. Dr. Assefa Tulu, the county epidemiologist, said that the close living quarters in homeless shelters make them prime for transmission of meningitis, and he stated, We consider this a very high public health priority.. ...
Description: The wars in Iraq and Afghanistan have brought renewed attention to the needs of veterans, including the needs of homeless veterans. Homeless veterans initially came to the countrys attention in the 1970s and 1980s, when homelessness generally was becoming a more prevalent and noticeable phenomenon. This report defines the term homeless veteran, discusses attempts to estimate the number of veterans who are homeless, and presents the results of studies regarding the demographic characteristics of homeless veterans as well as those served in VA homeless programs. The second section of this report summarizes the available research regarding the overrepresentation of both male and female veterans, who have been found to be present in greater percentages in the homeless population than their percentages in the general population. The third section of this report discusses programs to fund services and transitional housing specifically for homeless veterans. ...

Homelessness is the condition of people without a permanent dwelling, such as a house or apartment. People who are homeless are most often unable to acquire and maintain regular, safe, secure and adequate housing. The legal definition of homeless varies from country to country, or among different jurisdictions in the same country or region. The term homeless may also include people whose primary night-time residence is in a homeless shelter, a domestic violence shelter, long-term residence in a motel, a vehicle, squatting, cardboard boxes, a tent city, tarpaulins, shanty town structures made of discarded building materials or other ad hoc housing situations. According to the UK homelessness charity Crisis, a home is not just a physical space: it also provides roots, identity, security, a sense of belonging and a place of emotional wellbeing. United States government homeless enumeration studies also include people who sleep in a public or private place not designed for use as a regular sleeping ...
Kloehn ventured into building homes as he took interest in the tiny house movement and using recycled materials for homebuilding. He began building structures out of shipping containers and dumpsters, which he sells as homes, bars, and restaurants. These led to using garbage for building. He gives these little garbage homes away to the areas homeless.. The homeless shelters are small - about the size of a sofa - and are built on wheels so they can easily be moved around. They all have pitched roofs to keep the rain out.. ...
A systematic review, meta-analysis, and narrative synthesis to investigate the effectiveness and cost-effectiveness of permanent supportive housing and income interventions on the health and social wellbeing of individuals who are homeless in high-income countries. Permanent supportive housing and income assistance interventions were effective in reducing homelessness and achieving housing stability.  Permanent supportive housing had no measurable effect on the severity of psychiatric symptoms (ten studies), substance use (nine studies), income (two studies), or employment outcomes (one study) when compared with usual social services.

Supportive housing is the key to ending chronic homelessness, and provides a stable foundation for people living with mental illness or addictions. In Toronto, people apply for this housing through The Access Point, a community agency that works with housing providers. More than 14,000 people are on this waiting list.. What are the characteristics of people who have applied for supportive housing - demographics, homelessness, mental health or addiction issues, housing preferences, and support needs? What are the wait times, and who is more likely to be housed sooner? This report provides some answers to these and related questions.. This research report was a collaborative project of The Access Point, Canadian Mental Health Association (CMHA) Toronto Branch, and the Wellesley Institute.. The report also identifies implications of the findings - for The Access Point, supportive housing providers, funders, policy makers, and others. The implications range from strategic investments to operational ...

The Samenta study was conducted in 2009 in the Greater Paris area to estimate the prevalence of psychiatric disorders among the homeless. A cross-sectional survey was performed with a three-stage random sample of homeless people (n = 859), including users of day services, emergency shelters, hot meal distribution, long-term rehabilitation centres and social hotels. Information was collected by a lay interviewer, using the Mini International Neuropsychiatric Interview, and completed by a psychologist through an open clinical interview. In the end, a psychiatrist assessed the psychiatric diagnosis according to the ICD10. One third of the homeless in the Paris area had at least one severe psychiatric disorder: psychotic disorders (13%), anxiety disorders (12%) or severe mood disorders (7%). One in five was alcohol dependent and 18% were drug users. Homeless women had significantly higher prevalence of anxiety disorders and depression and men were more likely to suffer from psychotic disorders. Homeless
Committee to End Homelessness King County release One Night Count final tally: One Night Count final tally shows decline in unsheltered veterans and chronically homeless. Homelessness decreased among unsheltered veterans and those who are chronically homeless, according to final 2015 One Night Count numbers released today by the Committee to End Homelessness in King County.

The primary aim of this study was to assess the impact of an HIV and drug addiction intervention on reported sexual transmission HIV risk and drug use among homeless persons in two treatments for cocaine addiction. The ARA-C study (n=104) included 74 (71.2%) men and 30 (28.8%) women with an average age of 37.8 (SD=6.9) years. Most participants were African American (90, 86.5%) and the remainder were Caucasian (14, 13.5%). All participants met criteria for homelessness, nonpsychotic mental distress, and admitted to smoking crack cocaine within the 2 weeks prior to treatment.

By Gene Marcovici While botanically-derived substances may certainly play a positive role in ameliorating the onset and progression of pattern hair loss, good nutrition has not, per se, been demonstrated to have a like beneficial effect. The two notions may sound similar at first blush, but we will now explore how they differ. A simple proof-of-principle is instructive. One may observe numerous unfortunate souls who are homeless, poorly nourished, and even starving. Often, these people lack the most basic access to health care, clean water and good food. Yet, no higher degree of pattern hair loss is found in homeless shelter populations. If good nutrition was a prerequisite to good hair than many if not most homeless people should be balding. But this is simply the case. Accordingly, poor nutrition does not necessarily lead to baldness just as good nutrition does not necessarily equate to good hair. So if nutrition doesnt play a critical role in hair loss, something a bit more esoteric ...
A new smartphone application is helping residents of a Dallas homeless shelter combat problem drinking through an innovative program that uses machine learning to predict the feelings, triggers and situations that can lead to alcohol misuse.. Scott Walters, PhD, Regents Professor at the University of North Texas Health Science Center at Fort Worth (HSC), leads the study on this health intervention, as recently published in the Journal of Substance Abuse Treatment.. Dr. Walters and a team of researchers are partnering with The Bridge Homeless Recovery Center in Dallas, where residents are provided smartphones to better understand and predict when, where and why they may be more apt to drink and to aid in their journey toward recovery.. The program begins as these individuals interact with the phone app, responding to surveys at different times throughout the day for several weeks, to gather data on their location, who they are with, their mood, and whats happening in the moment that could ...

Because New York State courts have found that homeless individuals have a right to shelter, the citys failure, the suit maintains, also violates the US Constitutions guarantee of equal protection under the law. The lawsuit also makes claims under the federal Americans With Disabilities Act, citing statistics that up to 90 percent of homeless youth in New York suffer from some degree of emotional or behavioral disorder. Yet, the suit alleges, the city does not pay for mental health evaluations of homeless youth, leaving them responsible for demonstrating their needs.. The plaintiffs, identified only with initials, are nine homeless youths, aged 17-20, seven of whom identify as gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, or queer. Studies have shown that as many as 40 percent of homeless youth are LGBT, many of them thrown out of their homes by parents unwilling to support them in their sexual or gender identity. The experiences of the nine plaintiffs included being thrown out of their homes, ...

The San Antonio Police Department - known for its strict measures against homeless people - announced that it had fired a five-year veteran police officer after he attempted to feed a homeless man a fecal sandwich in May.. According to the departments statement, police officer Matthew Luckhurst bragged to a fellow officer about trying to feed the man human feces before his unnamed colleague reported the incident to the internal affairs in July.. This was a vile and disgusting act that violates our guiding principles of treating all with integrity, compassion, fairness and respect, Chief William McManus said in a statement Friday. The fact that his fellow officers were so disgusted with his actions that they reported him to Internal Affairs demonstrates that this type of behavior will never be tolerated.. In 2014, however, McManus wanted to make giving money to homeless people a crime but the idea was shelved after public outcry.. The decision to fire Luckhurst was based on ...
New Yorkers served by the City Bar Justice Centers Legal Clinic for the Homeless (LCH) are among the most vulnerable community members who have been disproportionately impacted by the COVID-19 crisis. When the pandemic hit New York, most City Human Resources Administration (HRA) offices closed, cutting significant communications between the agency and public assistance recipients. Since then, LCH has been highly responsive in addressing the immediate needs of their clients, mainly homeless and poverty-stricken New Yorkers in need of essential public assistance benefits to make it through the pandemic.. A homeless shelter resident and single mother, MS, reached out to LCH for help with getting essential benefits restored after having Medicaid benefits discontinued and Cash Assistance (CA) reduced during the outbreak of the pandemic. LCH Director, Lisa Pearlstein, Esq. reached out to top officials at HRA who promptly restored Medicaid and CA for the client and her family after learning MS had ...
Although homeless people frequently have serious health problems,1 they may experience difficulties obtaining primary health care at conventional sites.2 Experts therefore recommend health outreach programs in which homeless patients are seen at shelters and drop-in centres.3,4 This model of care may not be feasible under the fee-for-service system, because many homeless people do not have valid health insurance cards. We conducted a study to document how frequently physicians are not paid for the care they provide for homeless people in outreach settings in Toronto.. We examined the patient encounter and billing records of 3 family physicians who provide care at 3 facilities for homeless people in downtown Toronto. Shelter A has 60 beds for homeless youths, men and women and provides drop-in services for over 100 people daily. Shelter B accommodates 60 men, most of whom are chronically homeless and suffer from severe substance abuse or mental illness. Drop-in centre C serves about 100 adults ...

Students from Bristol University raised £400 for charity after taking part in a sponsored sleep-out to help raise money for the Julian Trust, the Bristol homeless charity. Twelve students swapped their beds for sleeping bags, cardboard boxes and minus temperatures to take part in the event, which was held in the Students Union car park on Friday night. The event was organised by the Universitys SCA (Student Community Action) group to fund raise for charity and increase awareness of homelessness.. All the money raised from Fridays event will go to the Julian Trust Nightshelter, the homeless shelter in St Pauls, which provides the homeless with food and somewhere warm to sleep. The shelter is used by between 80 to 100 people every night. According to various surveys Bristol has one of the largest numbers of homeless people outside of London..

When Mike Yankoski was 22, he wrote Under the Overpass. In this book he described his fascinating experiences as a homeless man. Mike took a break from his college education and lived on the streets of several large U.S. cities.. Yankoski prepared himself for this unusual experiment by reading books about homelessness, working at a homeless shelter, and gathering a group of advisers. He then let his hair and beard grow out, bought a worn-out backpack at a junk store, put a spare sweatshirt in it, and emptied his wallet. For the next five months he slept under bridges, panhandled, asked churches for food, and became so hungry at times that he ate out of garbage cans.. Mike Yankoski put himself through this painful ordeal for noble reasons. He longed to deepen his understanding of and compassion for the homeless poor. And he wanted to draw attention to their plight so that more people would extend a helping hand.. This self-imposed homelessness reminds us of the far greater sacrifice of Jesus. ...

As the City redoubles efforts to turn the tide on homelessness, including street homelessness, increasing capacity dedicated to serving street homeless New Yorkers is crucial. Drop-in centers and safe haven programs are low-barrier services specifically targeted toward street homeless individuals, who may be resistant to accepting other services, including traditional shelters. These facilities are often the first step toward bringing street homeless New Yorkers indoors. In addition to redoubling and enhancing proactive street outreach efforts, the City has brought on 350 beds dedicated to serving street homeless New Yorkers and will be bringing another 360 online by the end of the year. The first 500 units of the Mayors 15,000 supportive housing plan will also be coming online this year to further increase resources to address street homelessness.. All of these changes will serve to optimize canvassing and outreach strategy to most effectively engage street homeless New Yorkers and encourage ...

I recently spoke with Kathy Kropf, a Michigan educator who runs a support program for homeless students in Macomb County that is funded through the federal McKinney-Vento Homeless Assistance Act. She explained how the recession and related declines in the auto industry are increasing child homelessness in her Detroit-area school districts. Kropf helps homeless children with education needs, but notes that her students also have problems with other issues such as food and medical care.. Its important now more than ever that programs like Kathys and others assisting homeless children and families receive the support they need from Congress. Nearly 50 percent of surveyed school districts believed that the economic downturn was increasing homelessness in their communities at the end of last year. These upward trends exacerbate disturbing statistics indicating that, even in better times, 1 in 50 children (approximately 1.5 million) typically experience homelessness each year.. The McKinney-Vento ...
While the government has made efforts to expand homeless shelters, this is a band-aid solution that offers little in the way of fixing an unhoused persons situation. Permanent Supportive Housing offers 24/7 support to those in crisis, with round-the-clock care and community, much like an elder care facility. These facilities provide material improvements to the lives of those who are at risk, but also offer much better tools to begin the process of lifting people out of poverty. If you are interested in learning more about these styles of centers, I recommend researching Iris Court in Bonnie Doon and the downtown adjacent Westwood Manor. ...
Severe weather and parking issues have pushed people to the brink of homelessness, leaving many in San Francisco and other cities facing extreme challenges in finding housing.. NBC News has learned that nearly 1,500 people have found themselves in that situation over the past two weeks, according to a count from the San Francisco Housing Authority.. San Franciscos homeless population grew by 7,300 in 2016, according the California Department of Health.. More than 4,200 people are estimated to be homeless in the city right now, up from 4,100 in 2016..

Data were analyzed for 90,345 housed patient admissions (mean cost, $12,555) and 3081 homeless patient admissions (mean cost, $13,516). After adjustment for age, gender, and resource intensity weight, homeless patient admissions cost $2559 more than housed patient admissions (95% CI, $2053, $3066). For patients on medical and surgical services, much of this difference was explained by more alternate level of care days spent in the hospital, during which patients did not require the level of services provided in an acute care facility. Homeless patient admissions on the psychiatric service cost $1058 more than housed patient admissions (95% CI, $480, $1635) even after adjustment for length of stay ...
There is little research available in Ireland in relation to Dual Diagnosis and homelessness but research from abroad states an estimated 50% of homeless adults have a dual diagnosis. People with a dual diagnosis are much more likely to become homeless as having a dual diagnosis often leads to overall poorer ability to handle managing ones own life. (National Alliance for Mental Illness, USA).. Determining the number of people who are without homes at any given point is a difficult task due to the transient nature of some homelessness. It appears that services working in the area of homelessness believe that government figures are incorrect as the figures published are based only on homeless people that have contacted the local authorities. These services believe that the figures are much higher..
