The purpose of this project is to bring to light the issues faced by women and children living in SROs by developing a tool for community based workers that incorporates a Critical Social Theory and Intersectionality lens in the first steps of getting to know a community member and their everyday reality. This project aims to develop an intake form that incorporates narratives of families living in SROs and provides an outlet for their narrative to coordinate supportive services. This project is based on the knowledge that intersectionality shapes the experiences of many women of color (Crenshaw, 1994). A practitioners’ guide was developed to collect the narratives of women and their families currently living in San Francisco’s SROs and use the information to contribute to discourse on issues and implications drawn from living in SROs.
