Genealogy and Ideology of Taiwan Homeless Delivery Services

Genealogy and Ideology of Taiwan Homeless Delivery Services AbstractSince the mid-1990s, the number of homeless in Taiwan has been increasing. Politicians, policy makers, and service providers frequently debate whether the government should provide services for the homeless. Democracy and economic change have increased the number of homeless in Taiwan. However, the current homeless problem is also a product of a conservative welfare ideology based on family values and moral judgments. This study has implications for social workers and policy makers. (1) A universal principle for nationwide homeless delivery systems is required. (2) Restrictions that prohibit adults and youths with families providing little support from entering shelters should be eliminated. (3) Employment consultation and housing compensation should be provided to assist street people in re-entering mainstream society. (4) Supportive relationships with mainstream- based outreach services should be developed. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Journal of Social Distress and Homeless Taylor & Francis
