Abstract

Prior research findings show an increase in homeless services since the 1980s when more people faced a decline in income and became homeless. The objective of this research project is to address some barriers that those who are homeless face when trying to access services that would end their homeless state. This is a qualitative study with data collection taking place throughout Polk and Marion Counties. Interviews and surveys were conducted at nine different service facilities with 30+ individuals who are homeless or service providers.
