Women are at increased risk for hidden homelessness, living in overcrowded conditions or having sufficient money for shelter. A number factors make women more likely to experience homelessness compared to men, including: precarious employment that increases the likelihood of income changes or unemployment, and having to take on additional caregiver roles such as looking after children and other dependents.
Family violence is a major cause of homelessness for women, and while some women make use of services others wind up in inappropriate housing,
At Mary Seacole Housing. We aim to improve the overall quality of life for women experiencing homelessness by focusing on their strengths and empowering them to make informed choices that will contribute towards a more settled and positive future.
