City Streets, City People: A Call for Compassion

by Christensen, Michael J

Condition: Good


Nashville: Abingdon Press, 1989-01-01. Paperback. Good. spine creasing, edge wear; An estimated 3 million people constitute the fastest growing new class of Americans: street people. No longer confined to an easily recognizable group of down-and-out alcoholic men, this class now includes children, women, entire families, and people invisible to ordinary passersby. The homeless, the mentally ill, the economically displaced, the chemically addicted, the runaways, and the lonely new lepers of our society -- people with AIDS -- all face different circumstances and have different needs. City Streets, City People highlights these circumstances and identifies these needs, and in clearly written, easy-to-follow chapters, outlines how anyone -- volunteer lay worker, part-time paraprofessional, or full-time Christian social worker -- can minister to the mental, physical, and spiritual dimensions of city people.
