Question/topic: How has homelessness evolved in Salt Lake City the last 50 years? Who were the homeless in 1967? How did they become homeless and how and what happened to create an extraordinary growing number of homeless men, women and children now?

I found some very useful articles on Gale databases! In one article I found out more about who the homeless were in the 1970-1980s. This is super helpful and really imprint information. It also talks about the factors and risks and how they affect different communities. Gale databases really helped complete the first stage of my research! I also found articles on homeless families and the cause of their situation, I think this could help back up a lot of my information!
