Abstract Title

Housing Insecurity at Kent State University

Abstract

“Knock! Knock!” Who knew that housing insecurity and homelessness came in many forms? Unfortunately, the only examples of homelessness and housing insecurity we see in the media are of people holding a well-detailed distressed cardboard box or living under a bridge. Homelessness at Kent State looks like students walking through campus living their day-to day lives masking their realities of housing insecurity. Homelessness and housing insecurity influence both the community of Kent as well as the students attending the university. After conducting our assessment and coming up short on the amount of data on this topic, we decided that it was time to raise awareness by implementing an intervention in hopes to begin the talk and to make a change.
