CCU faculty members Sara Brallier and Stephanie Southworth co-author new book about homelessness in Horry County
“We are so grateful to the 250 people experiencing homelessness who were willing to share their stories with us,” said Southworth and Brallier. “They told us about the numerous structural barriers they encounter – lack of affordable housing and living wage jobs, inability to access mental and physical healthcare, inadequate public transportation, and the criminalization of homelessness. We hope that we highlighted their experiences in such a way that it will provide the framework for meaningful social change.”
The faculty members are also co-founders of The Poverty Project, where they engage their students in activist research through field experience and interaction with impoverished populations in Horry County.
