Moving to Opportunity

Xavier de Souza Briggs, Susan Popkin, and John Goering

  • Uniquely combines in-depth surveys plus mapping and ethnographic research to look deeply into the lives of poor families who engaged with MTO
  • Relates to the experience of the poor, minority families displaced by Katrina-and now to those suffering the worst effects of the foreclosure crisis.
