This article presents a combined strengths-feminist framework for work with homeless women. The framework focuses on the survival skills of homeless women (many of whom are mothers and victims of wife abuse) - resources that emergency room social workers and others who work with homeless women can tap. It contrasts sharply with much of the social work literature on homelessness that focuses on the pathology of persons who are homeless, particularly their mental illness, alcoholism, and drug abuse.
