Overcoming Misconceptions About Homelessness

When I spent a summer with the homeless community in Harvard Square, Neal and George were among the homeless people I spent time with. And in Homeless at Harvard, Neal and George share some of the hardships of life on the streets, in their own words. They talk about addiction. They open up about their hopes for the future. They tell us stories of their experiences around Harvard Square, like an older generation reminiscing of times long past. And while Neal shares his disappointments about not finding housing, he acknowledges that he could get bored if he stayed indoors too much.
