Ending the stigmas and supporting the homeless
Next week, the Alliance will host its long-awaited West Coast conference. This year’s event represents a focused opportunity to address an often-overlooked population: individual homeless adults
The sessions will take into account many subpopulations among individual adults, including veterans, youth over the age of 18, and people experiencing chronic homelessness.
But much of the content will be about everyone else. This includes people without children with them, people who don’t have a severe disability, and people without access to veteran resources. The challenge is figuring out how to help this group, by working at the local, state, and national level.
Some pediatricians are trained to determine whether kids’ injuries are accidental. Their assessments can be subjective—but they’re often accepted as fact. And when they’re wrong, parents can needlessly end up in jail.
