Violence in the Lives of Homeless Women
Friday, January 4, 2008 12:11 PM

The National Center on Family Homelessness has published a report documenting the results of a six-year study on violence against homeless women in Massachusetts.  Key findings include:

  • "Violence is pervasive in the lives of homeless women.
  • Violence profoundly compromises the physical and emotional well-being of many homeless women.
  • Violence and its sequelae often impact women’s ability to be economically self-sufficient."

For the full report, please contact Publications at the National Center on Family Homelessness.
