Welcome to our Homelessness Learning Resource
From 2016-2019 The Center for Ecumenical and Interreligious Engagement convened scholars, practitioners, and those who have experienced homelessness and shelterlessness, in order to provide background and insights on the complexities of these challenges.
This Homelessness Resource invites you, the viewer and listener, into these important conversations for educating both oneself and the community.
As this resource continues to grow and evolve, you encourage you to check back for new opportunities to view, listen, and engage new information.
Land of Stark Contrasts
The Center’s first text, co-published with Fordham press, is now available: Land of Stark Contrasts: Faith-Based Responses to Homelessness in the United States. This inter-disciplinary volume is a collection of essays, each of which explores the role of religion in understanding and responding to homelessness and housing insecurity in the United States.
According to the Fordham Press, “Land of Stark Contrasts brings together the work of social scientists, ethicists, and theologians exploring the profound role of religion in understanding and responding to homelessness and housing insecurity in all corners of the United States—from Seattle, San Francisco, and Silicon Valley to Dallas and San Antonio to Washington, D.C., and Boston.”
