Expert Insights

While the larger percentage of homeless are single men (47 percent), their reasons for being homeless are usually much different than those of homeless women. Single homeless women make up only 13 percent of the homeless population and are often on the streets as a result of domestic abuse. According to the National Coalition for the Homeless, homeless women are less likely to live on the streets for extended periods of time, instead looking for refuge in shelters or half-way homes.
