Title: Management' Policies Are Hurting the Nutrition of Homeless Youth in Toronto
Author: Gaetz, Stephen
Identifier: 00038
Abstract: Recent policies that claim to help homeless people are having a negative effect on their nutrition. Instead of helping homeless youth become independent and find their own income, the policies force youth to rely on limited emergency food aid. This will not help them break out of the chains of homelessness. Rather, it will make them more dependent in the long-run.
