“Women and families represent the fastest growing groups of the homeless population nationally. Approximately half of the homeless population are families with children. Among homeless families, 90 percent are female-headed. However, at least 85% of all homeless are men and homeless families are (still) rare. A young single-mother responsible for raising her child or children without familial support and material resources typically heads a homeless family.”
