Summary
Over the course of the last decade, Ronald Hill has dedicated his research efforts to answering the question: How do the poor survive in America's material world? Hill identifies six subgroups among the poor, including the "hidden homeless," homeless families living in shelters, poor children, and the rural poor. Approximately 13 percent of Americans (35 million people) live in poverty. That rate soars for children: it is estimated that nearly one in five young people lives in a home without adequate income, shelter, food, and health care. Bearing in mind the specific needs of each community, Hill proposes solutions that attack the roots of poverty by utilizing impoverished groups' strengths and understanding their weaknesses
