Sheltering the Homeless in New York City: Expansion in an Era of Government Contraction
Donna Wilson Kirchheimer assesses the proximate political factors that caused the New York City government to expand emergency shelters for homeless persons during 1978-1988, a period dominated by governmental retrenchment. She concludes that three factors were most influential: the rise of a new policy community about homelessness, the media agenda, and the response of state courts to a litigation campaign.
