"In the last 25 years the homeless and the shelters they access have diversified greatly. There are now men's and women's shelters, youth shelters, family shelters and Indigenous shelters. Shelters have become more professional and sophisticated in addressing homelessness in their region. They do much more than offer a bed and a meal for the night - they offer different methods of intervention, different forms of connection to the communities they serve and, inevitably, different visions of the future of the homeless shelter. Beyond Shelters offers essays by experienced shelter workers who address the future of the homeless shelter in Canada. The contributors have years of experience understanding the causes of and solutions to homelessness and the role that shelters can play in reducing homelessness. They set out the steps that will achieve their ultimate goal - the elimination of all forms of homelessness in Canada."--From publisher.
