This paper takea a close look at a certain tragic vulnerable population that can be found in cities and elsewhere across the United States: the homeless. There is a particular focus on homeless children, or street kids, and how homelessness adversely affects such young people. The paper gives a description of the selected population, the significance of problems related to their vulnerability, related health and social problems, an evaluation of the adequacy of current strategies to break the cycle of vulnerability, and a proposal for community and public health nursing interventions that may help correct the problem.

From the Paper:

"Throughout the United States, mostly in the country's larger cities, but also in suburban and rural areas, there is a mounting problem that is creating and tragically vulnerable population. This problem is that of homelessness and the population it affects is diverse and far-reaching. Those who have found themselves homeless can range from sufferers of mental illness, those subjected to poverty, those who are out of work, and those with substance abuse problems. But the most tragic victims of the rash of homelessness seen in America are homeless children. Without proper health care, without proper nutrition, without roofs over their heads and beds to sleep in, homeless children, or street kids, do not have much of a chance to live happy, healthy lives.
