This course, the second in the new Urban Homelessness sequence, is for students who wish to continue working in a more advanced capacity on the volunteer activities they have already begun. The academic objective is to prepare students to participate in a longitudinal research project examining the experiences of homeless people with public policies and service interventions. Students interview homeless clients, transcribe and analyze the interviews, enter the information into a database, and maintain contact with respondents so that next year's student researchers can take over the project and continue to follow the respondents' paths. The goal is to compile a multiyear database on individual homeless people's experiences. Prerequisite: Urban Homelessness 1 (LURB 2050) (in the current fall semester), Urban Homelessness (LURB 3003), or Homelessness/Service Learning (NSOC3786) in any previous semester.
