Abstract

Study of a temporary car camp for the homeless in Eugene, Oregon. Author used photographs, cognitive maps and a questionnaire to evaluate if the homeless there experienced a sense of home. Most residents did feel at home, basing their perceptions more on values of neighborliness, personalization of space, security, etc than on the physical shelter. The residents wanted the camp to remain open permanently, suggesting that US housing policies do not meet the needs of many homeless people. - (SLD)
