University of California, San Diego

Amy Binder, Associate Professor of Sociology at the University of California, San Diego, will explore the ways in which not-for-profit groups act as intermediaries to help needy individuals locate and access social services. She will focus on a transitional housing facility in Colorado and write a book on the ways the facility betters the lives of its clients by connecting them to educational resources.
