The guidebook results from a 353 Special Demonstration Project to research what was known about serving homeless adults as learners and what models, current practices, and materials were being used. Research was done by telephone interviews with the staff of 19 homeless shelters in 10 states, site visits at 8 New York shelter programs, and a review of the literature. Sections of the guidebook are the following: program structures and resources; recruitment and retention of homeless learners; program content; evaluating program outcomes; and sample lesson plans.
