Urban Sanctuaries: Neighborhood Organizations in the Lives and Futures of Inner-City Youth
"This book is a beam of light in the dark world of inner-city youth, and as beams of light often do, it shows the way.
—from the foreword by John W. Gardner, former secretary of the U.S. Department of Health, Education, and Welfare, and founder of Common Cause
"Urban Sanctuaries is a well-written, absorbing account of an endangered species, our inner-city youth, and of the adults who work hard to save them. This book is must reading for anyone who professes to care about the future of today's youth."
"Urban Sanctuaries builds a compelling and moving case for the effectiveness of community-based programs for inner-city adolescents."
"In contrast to policy reports that detail statistics on youth problems and big system responses, this book immerses us in the rich reality of young people's hopes and challenges and shows us the power of seemingly modest programs to support the youth they believe in."
