This study explores the characteristics, coping patterns, and personal problems of 473 homeless women in 21 randomly selected rural counties in Ohio. Most of the women were homeless without partners and often attributed their homelessness to family conflict and economic hardships. Unlike homeless women in urban studies, the rural women had low incidence of mental illness and substance abuse and high levels of resourcefulness. Concerns about the impact of welfare reform on rural women are discussed. (Authors)
