Not So Simple: Observations on Poverty and People
Out of stock
[Recipient of the 2019 California Book to Action Award] It’s hard to imagine homelessness getting worse, but that’s where the West Coast is headed. People can barely get by. More and more individuals are pouring into the streets where they struggle just to survive. Affordable housing is scarce. Mental illness is rampant. Support networks have run dry. How did we get here? Why is homelessness increasing throughout the West Coast? How can we help those living outside the margins of society?[**All proceeds from Not So Simple will go to the ‘Homeless to Housing’ initiative for Project Understanding in Ventura, CA.** Visit HappyFridayEveryDay.com for more information.]Through poetry and photography, Not So Simple: Observations on Poverty and People shares stories of those living on the streets, examines how poverty has persisted and gained ground in the United States, and provides a template for creating empathy and a human-centered approach to communities throughout the country.
