The Story of an American Experiment to Fight Ghetto Poverty

Xavier de Souza Briggs, Susan J. Popkin, and John Goering

  • Based upon 5 years of unique, new research using multiple methods to assess the effects of a major housing mobility experiment
  • 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.
