Abstract

This study analyzes the nature and scope of homelessness and issues related to social services use. Using focus group interviews, this exploratory study examined the expressed needs of homeless veterans and the obstacles encountered in obtaining health and human services. Types of problems and social services barriers were developed with exemplarsfrom the interviews. These veterans self-reported a high incidence ofhealth and mental health problems, limited resources, negative publicperceptions and treatment, insensitive service providers, dehumanizing policies and procedures, and high levels of stress and frustration with the service delivery system. They encountered personal, situational, and bureaucratic barriers to obtaining services and were highly critical of service providers. These findings suggest a need for greater emphasis on advocacy-based case management services, affordable housing, employment opportunities, increased sensitivity in service deliverysystems, and empowerment-centered practice.
