Homelessness in Chicago

« back to classes page
ClassGraphic An estimated 42,000 homeless persons can be found in Los Angeles, a city where multiple studies of homelessness have been conducted. Approximately 6000 households are homeless in Chicago. After eviction or other reasons for losing a home, people remain on waiting lists for long periods of time while seeking affordable housing or housing vouchers. Daily, Chicagoeans find themselves homeless, instantly on the street. This 7-week study group explores the many different life experiences that lead to homelessness. Via guest speakers, this study group will examine existing causes of homelessness. These speakers will provide detailed stories illustrating the problem and attempt to discover pragmatic solutions. We will discuss the increasing challenge to politicians, and some of the reasons the problem worsens and evades solution. Together we will develop a shared understanding of the homeless situation and a framework for analysis. Study group members will be provided articles from sources such as The New York Times, World Economic Forum, National Home Builders Association, Urban Institute and HUD reports.
