Homeless women are a unique population struggling with high rates of trauma, mental illness, substance use and many other concerns. There is a lack of resources for these women that understand the impact of trauma in their lives. Surviving the Streets was created as an attempt to offer homeless women a first-stage treatment addressing some of their immediate concerns, providing them with resources, acknowledging the impact of their traumas, providing a supportive environment, and setting the stage for continuing treatment. Surviving the Streets is a trauma-informed treatment guide created by combining consumer input with professional literature.
