Individuals experiencing homelessness are more likely to be a victim of a crime, be arrested for a crime, and be incarcerated for a crime compared to housed individuals. The causes and consequences of these associations are often debated and profiled in the media, at neighborhood meetings, and occasionally, at legislative sessions. This presentation will describe the role that social disadvantage plays in the definition of, response to, and consequences of incarceration for individuals with a history of homelessness.
