Abstract

Two studies involved structured interviews with 203 homeless people to examine the impact of

attitudes, subjective norms, perceived behavioral control, and intention, on uptake of outreach

New York. In line with previous research, the psychological variables accounted for more variance

variables were moderated by sociodemographics. In London intentions and behavior were

by perceived control and attitude. These differences may be attributable to different institutional

social context and implications for intervention strategies are discussed in light of these differences
