Proposed Project: Social Support for Homeless Mothers: Implications for Best Practices and Program Design—New

The Health Care for the Homeless Clinicians' Network (HCHCN) of the National Health Care for the Homeless Council, Inc., through a cooperative agreement with the Bureau of Primary Health Care, Health Resources and Services Administration, proposes to conduct a study on the social support available to homeless mothers, most of whom are parenting children alone. The study will be of adult homeless women and will be conducted by convening focus groups and administering a questionnaire to focus group members. The study is designed to look at clients' life events, histories of violence, medical and physical illness, social support, children's needs, and services use. The results will help to define best practices as they relate to social support processes and enable HCH programs to offer the appropriate mix of supports necessary to help mothers transition into permanent housing. The participants will be recruited from ten sites of the national Health Care for the Homeless program.

The estimated response burden is as follows:
