|Abstract:||This study investigated the relationship between sensitivity to justice and willingness to help the homeless. A paper and online survey was distributed to community centers and educational programs across the country (N = 276) to assess participants’ feelings and experiences regarding helping the homeless. Multiple linear regression analysis revealed that sensitivity to justice, empathy, education level and religiosity were all significantly associated to both expressed and actual willingness to help the homeless and this association was moderated by age and gender. Political affiliation and type of giving behavior did not appear associated with each other or with expressed or actual giving behavior towards the homeless. This information is helpful in understanding predictive factors in helping behavior that extend even to the most heavily stigmatized members of society.|
