Case Study: The Dallas Jewish Coalition for the Homeless: A Community Response to Child Care Needs of Families Living in Shelters

By Martin Sundel, Phyllis Newman

Conference of Jewish Communal Service, Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), 1990

The problem of homelessness has been viewed as symptomatic of the broader crisis of affordable housing that creates economic, domestic, and psychological stress for many low- and moderate-income Americans. Social work and other human service professions have focused increasingly on the plight of the homeless, especially the unemployed and the mentally or physically disabled. From the social work standpoint, inadequate shelter can interfere with an individual's efforts to handle other problems. In order to address the needs of homeless families effectively, social workers and community leaders require accurate knowledge about the economic, political, and social determinants of housing problems.
