A Cry for Help: Stories of Homelessness and Hope
Simon & Schuster, 1996 - Social Science - 103 pages
"A Cry for Help is a vivid and irrefutable picture of the homeless in America, told in their own words. Portraits by acclaimed photographer Mary Ellen Mark join an urgent introduction by Andrew Cuomo, Assistant Secretary for Community Planning and Development, H.U.D. and founder of H.E.L.P. (Housing Enterprise for the Less Privileged). Noted child psychiatrist and Pulitzer Prize-winning author Dr. Robert Coles offers a thoughtful preface about the painful effects of homelessness on a child's soul. In the tradition of classic works of advocacy like Let Us Now Praise Famous Men, this book speaks to our national moral conscience and offers an optimistic message that both personal and social change is possible."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
