Adolescents in Public Housing incorporates data from multiple public-housing sites in large U.S. cities to shine much-needed light on the symptoms and behaviors of African American youth living in non–HOPE VI public-housing neighborhoods. With findings grounded in empirical research, the book gives practitioners and policy makers a solid grasp of the attitudes toward deviance, alcohol and drug abuse, and depressive symptoms characterizing these communities and links them explicitly to gaps in policy and practice. Adolescents in Public Housing initiates new, productive paths for research into this vulnerable population and vitally contributes to the development of preventive interventions that may increase the life chances of affected youth.
