Authors: Roanna C.F. Yangco
Roanna Yangco undertook this research while working at the Adult Literacy Program in Dorchester, Massachusetts which is housed in a multi-service center/shelter for single mothers and their children.
Yangco states: “In this research study, I wanted to establish a sufficient working definition of violence, one that encompasses all of the complexities of violence that affect low-income women. I hoped to identify the impacts of violence on the women in our literacy program. Using this knowledge I wanted to influence the design of a comfortable learning environment that facilitates a lifelong desire for learning. Finally, I looked to making our experience known beyond our program.”
