How do families grapple with poverty, illness, and disability? From fractured support systems to well-intentioned but underfunded agencies, the portraits of six families lay bare flawed social structures and expectations. Author Karen Zilberstein is a psychotherapist and serves as the Clinical Director of the Northampton, MA chapter of A Home Within, a national non-profit devoted to providing pro bono therapy to foster care youth and alumni.
