At any given moment, about 3 million American women, men, and children
are homeless. And another 5 million Americans spend over 50% of their
incomes on housing, meaning that one missed paycheck, one health
crisis, or one unpaid utility bill can push them out the door into

Homelessness is one of the major social problems and personal and
family tragedies of the contemporary world. No community, city, or
nation is immune and the lack of affordable housing and a decline in
secure, well-paying jobs means that the problem will only get worse.
The Encyclopedia of Homelessness is the first systematic effort to
organize and summarize what we know about this complex topic that
impacts not only the homeless but all of society. The Encyclopedia
focuses on the current situation in the United States with a
comparative sampling of homelessness around the world.
