Summary of an Urban Ethnographers' Symposium on Low-Income Men

Abstract

The Urban Institute, with funding from the Office of the Assistant Secretary for Planning and Evaluation, US Department of Health and Human Services, convened a symposium to explore the state of knowledge on disconnected low-income men and promising strategies for improving their well-being, focusing particularly on men of color. The participants included ethnographers and other qualitative researchers, social service providers, foundation program officers, and federal government staff. The candid insights offered enriched understanding of the complex problems faced by low-income men, the programs currently serving their needs, and some of the issues about which more study is needed.
