An increase in the number of individuals who are homeless since the 1980s has made homelessness a major social, economic, and political problem in the United States.
The number of homeless in this country is estimated as high as 3 million, with women and children constituting the fastest growing subgroup of this population.
A study of eight homeless women using a shelter in a southeastern city was conducted to explore the experience of homelessness from the women's perspectives.
A modified ethnographic approach using a semistructured interview provided qualitative data.
