Urban poverty can be an especially powerful risk factor in the lives of women and children. This research project focused on an area of high poverty in Fresno, California and examined the experiences women had raising young children. Some of the most salient themes that emerged from the research centered on the influence of both formal and informal groups located within the neighborhood. This poster tries to identify community level factors that other women, community groups, neighborhoods, and researchers would find useful.
