Although homelessness is a serious social problem in the United States, there is little direct information about the actual experiences of violence, past and current, among homeless people. This volume, based on the Florida Four-City Study, brings together interview material from 737 women, including structured quantitative interviews as well as in-depth qualitative interviews. The authors investigate how many homeless women have experienced violence in their lives, either as children or as adults, and then examine factors associated with experiences of violence, the consequences of violence, and types of interactions of homeless people with the justice system. The volume concludes with pragmatic and compassionate policy recommendations.

Review:

“This is an excellent and much needed contribution to the field. The scholarship is first rate and the authors provide cutting edge data on the complexities of homelessness and violence. It is refreshing to read a rich scientific account of one of society’s most compelling social problems that offers in-depth qualitative data on the lives of people who typically suffer in silence.” (Walter S. DeKeseredy, Ph.D., Professor of Criminology, Justice and Policy Studies, University of Ontario Institute of Technology and co-author of Dangerous Exits: Escaping Abusive Relationships in Rural America)
