Desired Destinations of Homeless Women: Realizing Aspirations Within the Context of Homelessness.

Publication ,  Journal Article
Biederman, DJ; Forlan, N
Published in: Creative nursing
August 2016

Despite recent decreases, homelessness remains a substantial problem in the United States. Homelessness is associated with poor health, and homeless women experience earlier mortality than their housed counterparts. Understanding the aspirations of homeless women may offer service providers avenues for intervention to increase well-being among this vulnerable population. This study, a secondary analysis of transcribed interviews (n = 20), provides insight into the aspirations of homeless women. Opportunities for service providers to intervene on these aspirations within the context of homelessness are offered.
