Abstract:There are implications of the study at both the neighborhood and societal levels. For the neighborhood, lack of social networks, adult role models, and safe places can be alleviated by settlement houses specifically, and by social programs in general. There are implications for policy and practice development in the areas of social work, education, and urban planning. The most significant social implications point to the need to create and sustain social capital that in turn will advance human capital in poor neighborhoods.
