Many live in highly segregated, poor communities often marked by multiple forms of violence and crime, exposing youth to a number of adverse childhood experiences (Goetz 2003; Duncan, Brooks-Gunn, & Klebanov 1994; DuRant, Pendergrast, & Cadenhead 1994; Turner, Popkin, & Rawlings 2009). Still, important relationships between risk and protective factors, as well as their influences on adolescents’ mental health and health-risk behaviors, have not been fully explored. A review of empirical papers published since around 2000 indicates that research on youth in public housing has, for the most part, been based on single-site data and has focused primarily on risk factors.
This limited body of empirical evidence shares five salient features. First, it focuses on risk factors and deficits in youth. Second, it is based on data obtained from single sites located in single cities. Third, there is a near-absence of protective factors that may promote resilience within this population of youth. Fourth, this research does not provide any insights on how various factors across domains interact to promote or inhibit adolescents’ mental health and behaviors. Finally, this research lacks a unified framework that attempts to explicate and explain life in public housing neighborhoods.

The twenty-first century has seen tens of thousands of public housing developments bulldozed or imploded to clear the way for mixed-income communities (Goetz 2003; Vale 2002). Social commentators and mass media have touted the success of mixed-income communities, juxtaposing photos of high-rise and barrack-style poverty-stricken housing developments against manicured, colorful mixed-income communities.
