Traces the lives and personal stories of homeless women in Halifax, Ottawa and Vancouver.

Notes: 
Includes bibliographical references. --- Network Winter/Spring 2005 review: The number of homeless women in Canada has increased dramatically since the 1990s. Political realities such as changes in transfer payments to the provinces and the failure to deliver a national housing strategy have played a part. In this report the author traces the personal stories of homeless women in Halifax, Ottawa and Vancouver. Funded in part by the National Network on Environments and Women’s Health, it is the result of a multi-year project analyzing the causes and conditions of homelessness. The report includes a list of recommendations to both the federal and provincial/territorial governments.
