"Not so long ago, women and children were rare at rescue missions and shelters. How times have changed! Today, homeless women with children are more common than ever. According to some estimates, between 70% and 90% of homeless families in America are headed by women. Even more significant, the population of homeless families has increased by 35% since 1989."
Don't lose hope. When it gets darkest the stars come out.
The main reason women become homeless is domestic violence.
