Complex factors contribute to homelessness, especially among older African American women. These women may be confronted at earlier periods in their lives with social problems (i.e., inadequate housing, social and economic inequities) that can lead to a lack of opportunities and resources (Davis, 1997, Jackson, Taylor, & Chatters, 1993). Additional study is needed to identify factors that contribute to homelessness among this population. The Behavior Model for Vulnerable Populations (Gelberg, Andersen, & Leake, 2000) incorporated three components, predisposing, enabling, and need, to study health issues of homeless and other vulnerable populations. Social structure and enabling resources are the focus of the vulnerable domains. One hundred African American homeless women (50 years of age and over) will be asked to participate in interviews to obtain demographic information and complete instruments to measure health status, drug-taking self-efficacy, and tendency to use alcohol. The data collected from the interview and instruments will be analyzed using both descriptive and inferential statistical analyses. Descriptive statistics will use to provide a description of factors associated with homelessness and health conditions. Correlations and regression analyses will be used to determine which factors contribute to older African American women's homelessness and associated health issues.
