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 ...
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 ...

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, ...

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 ...

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

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 ...
On July 1, 2019, SB 1152 requires hospitals to have a written plan for coordinating services and referrals for homeless patients. Successful implementation will hinge upon working with your regional health care and social service agencies to ensure appropriate homeless patient discharge. Further, the law requires that hospitals maintain a log of homeless patients discharged and the destinations to which they were released after discharge. CHA staff will explain the intricacies of SB 1152 and a hospital representative will share insights on the development of their hospitals plan and the steps they have taken toward compliance.. ...
Single women and families with children are rapidly growing segments of the homeless population (NCH, 2009b). Homeless women generally report a lower quality of life, and are at a greater risk for various physical and mental health issues than their housed counterparts (NCH, 2009a). Mental illness, including depression and anxiety, impacts 20 to 25% of the homeless population in the United States, compared to 6% of the general population (NCH, 2009b). Social support can serve as a mediating factor between undesirable life events and depression (La Gory, Ritchey, Mullis, 1990). Unfortunately, the social support system among homeless individuals is sometimes eroded by homelessness itself, or the circumstances leading to homelessness. Additionally, because homeless individuals rarely have access to traditional treatment services for anxiety and depression, there is a need for different and innovative depression interventions. The purpose of this project was to implement and evaluate a peer mentor

The term homeless refers to those individuals who are absolutely, periodically, or temporarily without shelter, as well as those who are at substantial risk of being on the street in the immediate future. Homelessness has always been a significant social problem. However, as the number of unhoused people has grown dramatically in recent years, some have declared homelessness to be a national disaster. Equally disturbing is the rapidly changing face of those who are homeless. Families, single mothers, and children are among the fastest growing segments of the homeless population.. ...

As social distancing measures force homeless shelters to cut their intake capacity in half, a Seattle religious group is worried about the citys unhoused population. Restrictions on movement are hindering both fundraising and food distribution efforts. Noelle Wiggins from REACH talked to CBSNs Anne-Marie Green.
Homeless for three years, Ressurrection Graves vividly remembers the week she slept in her car, waiting for beds to become available at a Washington, D.C., homeless shelter. It was the week of Aug. 23, 2011, when a 5.8 earthquake shook the Virginia area and Hurricane Irene battered the East Coast with wind and rain.. I prayed and was asking God how this could end, she told It was like, Make it stop!. When beds finally became available at the shelter, Ressurrection checked in. And there she met Deven Graves, the kind man with whom she would leave homelessness behind and start an organization that is helping people caught in a cycle of poverty, including more than 75 homeless individuals so far this year. ...
Veronika Scott grew up near Detroit, Michigan in a tough household environment. She took note of the over 20,000 Detroiters who are homeless which now equals 1 of every 42 residents.. She worked hard in high school and was able to earn a college scholarship to study industrial design at the College for Creative Studies in Detroit, one of the top design schools in the U.S.. One college class that she took changed her life forever. The assignment was to design something to fill a social need. Veronika reached out to the homeless community in Detroit to understand their problems. After 5 months of research and experimenting, she invented a coat that turned into a sleeping bag!. While her invention was brilliant and doing lots of good, one homeless woman approached her saying that what they needed was not coats, but jobs.. This caused Veronika to rethink everything once again. She decided to expand her focus from just providing for the homeless to empowering the homeless.. As stated on the website ...

Tuberculosis (TB) is a disease particularly affecting the poorest socioeconomic groups. One such group in Central Europe are the homeless. We developed a prevention programme that targets, among others, homeless individuals in Warmia and Mazury Province (in the northeast of Poland). We investigated 121 homeless persons. We performed surveys, X-rays and microbiological tests of the sputum for TB. Five cases of pulmonary TB were found. The prevalence of TB in this community was estimated at 4132 per 100,000 (4.13%). Efficient TB control justifies continued prevention programmes aimed at the systematic monitoring of the homeless population ...
The Oregon Health Authority (OHA) and Oregon Housing and Community Services (OHCS) are collaborating to sponsor a Statewide Supportive Housing Strategy Workgroup. The workgroup will advise OHA and OHCS on key program and policy considerations and develop an implementation framework to support the housing services and health service needs of homeless individuals or individuals at risk of homelessness. The workgroup will leverage legislative, local, and state agency (OHA and OHCS) investments to develop strategies for increased supported and supportive housing capacity across the state.. ...
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

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 ...
Homeless Youth There are youth shelters throughout the United States but there are far fewer of them than adult shelters and sometimes they dont advertise their location for safety reasons. Often youth shelters are not included in resources listing. For example: I did a quick search for all shelters in Duluth, MN through Homeless Shelters…
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 ...
We want to help youth and women by donating what we believe are the necessities that many people may take for granted, said Naranjo. Lets Keep Warm this Winter is our annual event where we will be making blankets for the homeless youth in Redlands, and Little Bags, LOTS of Confidence is a new event that we have decided to start. Its an event where we will be creating feminine hygiene bags that include condoms, tampons, pads, and liners for homeless women in San Bernardino. Well also be having a back-to-school donation drive for the homeless youth and we will be collecting spare change throughout the week.. The organization is also placing dummies that look like homeless people with signs listing homelessness statistics around a gathering area on campus called Hunsaker Plaza to raise awareness. The homeless dummies we have placed purposefully throughout Hunsaker Plaza have been a great addition to part of our activism in catching the student bodys attention, said Naranjo. I personally ...
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.. Leanne Miller, University of Bristol, SCA Nightshelter Project Co-ordinator, said: I took part in the sponsored sleep-out because having worked at the ...

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 ...
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.. In order to get a snapshot of the impact of Dual Diagnosis on the homeless population in Ireland, the table below is generated from the number of clients that Focus Ireland (a registered charity that ...
The home base for Occupy Atlanta has tested positive for tuberculosis.. The Fulton County Health Department confirmed Wednesday that residents at the homeless shelter where protesters have been occupying have contracted the drug-resistant disease. WGCL reports that a health department spokeswoman said there is a possibility that both Occupy Atlanta protesters and the homeless people in the shelter may still be at risk since tuberculosis is contracted through air contact.. Over the last three months were have been two persons who have resided in this facility who have been diagnosed with confirmed or suspected infectious tuberculosis (TB), said Fulton County Services Director Matthew McKenna in a written statement to CBS Atlanta. One of these persons was confirmed to have a strain of TB that is resistant to a single, standard medication used to treat this condition. All person(s) identified as positive have begun treatment and are being monitored to ensure that medication is taken as ...
A hepatitis A outbreak in San Diego County that began early this year with most cases in homeless people and illicit drug users has now sickened at least 481, including 337 needing hospitalization and 17 who died, the countys Health and Human Services Agency (HHSA) said in its most recent update.. The disease spreads person to person and through contact with environments contaminated with feces. In early September, the outbreak led county officials to declare and ratify a local public health emergency, and health officials have offered vaccination in targeted locations.. In a Sep 12 health alert, county officials said cases were reported in all parts of the county, and though there are several clusters that share epidemiologic links, so far no common food, beverage, or drug source had been found. Case clusters have been reported in people who used the same homeless shelters or shared bathrooms in other facilities such as jails, hotels, or drug treatment centers.. Viral sequencing shows that 13 ...
The purpose of this study was to investigate the level of adherence to antipsychotic prescription medication in a well-defined homeless cohort over a 15-year period. We hypothesized that adherence would be well below the recommended threshold for clinical effectiveness (80 %), and that it would be strongly associated with modifiable risk factors in the social environment in which homeless people live.Linked baseline data (including comprehensive population-level administrative prescription records) were examined in a subpopulation of participants from two pragmatic-randomized trials that investigated Housing First for homeless and mentally ill adults. Adherence to antipsychotic medication was operationalized using the medication possession ratio. Multivariable logistic regression was used to estimate effect sizes between socio-demographic, homelessness-related and illness factors, and medication possession ratio.Among the 290 participants who met inclusion criteria for the current analysis, adherence to
A tenth of people who are homeless become so due to depression, research published yesterday has found.. The survey of 1,400 homeless people by London homelessness charity St Mungos also found that 70 per cent had complex needs. Rough sleepers, people living in hostels and temporary housing were surveyed by the charity. Its programme director Peter Cockersell said the findings were deeply shocking. He called for a counsellor to be installed in every homeless hostel to ensure that those suffering from depression are assisted as quickly as possible. Currently the charity can only offer informal counselling sessions and make assessments, it said. ...
A homeless man was found dead at a Cincinnati bus stop on Tuesday and a homeless advocacy group is calling for more shelters from the freezing cold.
The city is abuzz with Captain Hammers crusade to help the homeless and he is considered the citys new hero; Penny ponders her relationship with Captain Hammer, waiting at the laundromat to share frozen yogurt with an absent Billy; and Dr. Horrible goes into seclusion while obsessively constructing a Death Ray to kill Captain Hammer once and for all (So They Say). At the opening for the new homeless shelter, where a statue of Captain Hammer will be unveiled, Captain Hammer begins a speech of encouragement to the homeless, but it degenerates into self-centered, condescending praise of his own excellence and relationship with Penny (Everyones a Hero). Penny, embarrassed and disillusioned, quietly tries to leave as the crowd joins in singing Hammers song, but they are interrupted by the appearance of Dr. Horrible, who uses the Freeze Ray on Captain Hammer, cutting his song short. Dr. Horrible taunts the shocked crowd and declares that they cannot recognize that Hammers disguise is ...

Yeah, well, he actually filed a lawsuit last Thursday. Gabo Olvera, the homeless man unceremoniously dumped at Skid Row last year is suing Hollywood Presbyterian for for negligence and elder abuse, with the help of advocacy organization Public Counsel. Olvera is one of about fifty reported incidents that have taken place in the last twelve months, of homeless people being dumped by hospitals. But Olvera, a paraplegic, was dumped off in Skid Row without a wheelchair - only a soiled gown and a colostomy bag, and was found crawling along the pavement with his paperwork in his mouth. An especially callous touch: witnesses claim that the driver of the van stopped to apply makeup before driving off.. This isnt the first lawsuit on the subject in L.A. In May, Kaiser Foundation Hospitals, settled a lawsuit involving the dumping of another patient by agreeing to find shelter places for all patients it discharges in Los Angeles. According to Reuters, Hollywood Presbyterian said in a statement in May it ...

The Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) uses the cultural definition of homelessness to enumerate the homeless population on census night (Chamberlain and MacKenzie 1992). This definition distinguishes between people in primary, secondary and tertiary homelessness.. Primary homelessness describes the situation of all people without conventional accommodation, such as people living on the streets, sleeping in parks, squatting in derelict buildings, living in improvised dwellings (such as sheds, garages or cabins), and using cars or railway carriages for temporary shelter.. Secondary homelessness describes the situation of people who move frequently from one form of temporary shelter to another. On census night, all people staying in emergency or transitional accommodation provided under the Supported Accommodation Assistance Program (SAAP) are considered part of this category. Secondary homelessness also includes people residing temporarily with other households because they have no ...

As it turned out, dozens upon dozens of homeless people were happy to become art collaborators with Clinthorne and her sister Sally Thielen, a ceramist from Flint. For the last 2 and a half years, the sisters have been exhibiting multimedia art installations that include life-size (or larger) photo cut-outs of homeless people from Ann Arbor-many from Camp Take Notice-Flint, Detroit, and places they travel such as New York City. The sisters have collected tons of signs for the project and made a few original artworks to go along with the materials they collect from interacting with homeless people. On display at St. Andrews Episcopal Church in downtown Ann Arbor through Sunday, the sisters art installations are spread across 3 rooms in the church-Parish Hall, the sanctuary, and the foyer near the church offices. At its heart, the sisters art project is an entirely nonprofit way to inspire fundraising, volunteerism, and compassion for homeless people. Many churches have displayed ...
APN) ATLANTA - There is a tremendous shortage of affordable housing units and shelter beds in the City of Atlanta - but, this shortage would be so much worse if the City of Atlanta werent locking so many homeless people up in cages.. The City of Atlantas criminalization homeless people and other marginalized communities continues through the enforcement of so-called Quality of Life (QOL) ordinances..

NEW YORK - For years, public housing has been forbidden for many people with criminal records. But a two-year-old pilot program run by the New York City Housing Authority that allows ex-offenders to live in public housing with relatives is showing signs of progress.. So far, none of the participants has received any new convictions and many are able to leave or avoid the homeless shelter system while they rebuild family ties.. Margaret diZerega, director of the Family Justice Program at the Vera Institute of Justice, which is helping to implement and study the family re-entry pilot project, says it could become a model for similar programs in other counties.. There was recent HUD guidance that came out a couple of weeks ago and they cited family reunification programs like the NYCHA pilot among the best practices for housing authorities, says diZerega. Were optimistic more counties will look to this kind of an approach and see how it could work in their jurisdiction.. diZerega says the ...

Each year, Thanksgiving reminds us how much we have to be grateful for. And, one of the best ways to show gratitude is to give back. As the holiday approaches, think taking some time to warm the hearts of others.. Here are some great ways to show thanks this Thanksgiving:. Provide dinner for a family in need. Many families dont have the means to enjoy a lavish feast around the dinner table on Thanksgiving. This year, make the holiday one to remember for a hungry family. You can donate a complete dinner through your local church or community outreach organization. Visit Feeding America to find more ways to join the fight against hunger.. Deliver food to a homeless shelter. If you live in Los Angeles, for example, Union Rescue Mission serves upwards of 4000 meals on Thanksgiving Day. You can also volunteer your time and help serve food at your local shelter.. Visit a local nursing home. Elderly nursing home residents frequently spend the holidays alone.
