This chapter presents a summary and synthesis of the volume and provides direction for future research in public housing. One of the major contributions of this book is the introduction of a new theoretical perspective for understanding child and adolescent development within the context of public neighborhoods. It concludes that interventions for youth living in urban public housing need to be developed to incorporate the unique context of their environments. By focusing interventions on both protective and risk factors found in the public housing environment and directing those interventions at different levels of systems in the youth's life, there is potential to improve the developmental trajectory of the youth residents of urban public housing.
