Homelessness – a hidden problem for women in New Zealand
It is difficult to quantify the number of women who are homeless in New Zealand. Homelessness means much more than just living on the street – it can mean being unsafe, having an insecure tenancy, being inadequately or inappropriately housed or having nowhere to call your own. Hidden homelessness is often as a problem because of this difficulty. However, it is temporary or long term situation for many women.
