Unlocking Homelessness in the Classroom

In this MMP, homelessness is an experience that can impact anyone. No matter their age, race, background, or ability, individuals and families can get caught in a cycle of poverty and homelessness. Despite a growing need of qualified helping professionals to engage with this community, few social work classes at any level devote much time or attention to this issue. Listed as one of the grand challenges facing the social work profession, this MMP can be used to help students explore this issue and hopefully, spark the idea that future social workers can turn the tide towards ending the epidemic of homelessness.
