Abstract

This is a reflection on my years as director of a community outreach, community development program in public housing. I have tried to convey a sense of the community and its people, and of the students and staff who were the essential players in our outreach effort. But I have also used this essay to try and come to grips with some of the moral and civil, political and social dimensions and issues that affect my understanding of poverty as well as our society's attitude about poor people.
