Public housing communities have become isolated pockets of concentrated poverty primarily occupied by nonwhite families and often marked by an array of social ills, including high rates of violence, crime, and drug use. While scholars have begun paying increased attention to the effects of growing up in these communities on child and adolescent development, there are no theoretical models that examine the causal linkages between living in urban public housing neighborhoods and the developmental trajectories of minority youth. This chapter introduces the Integrated Model of Adolescent Development in Public Housing Neighborhoods. The model describes the major aspects of life in public neighborhoods that may operate in the distal and proximal domains to influence the development of youth living in these communities. The model is guided by existing theoretical frameworks and empirical evidence that have identified factors and mechanisms by which place, context, and environment affect child development.
