New and timely!
In Rough Sleepers, author Tracy Kidder tells the story of Dr. Jim O’Connell’s work with the homeless community in Boston. Rather than seeing them as a social problem to be solved or eliminated, he sought to see patients as individuals with individual needs. In doing so, he has brought them medical care, food, clothing, and a network of friends and support. Eye-opening and inspiring.
