Included are more than 600 numbers for services provided by the state and local governments, detoxification support, discrimination referrals, drop-in services and meals, healthcare options for the homeless, hospitals and health centers, adult and family shelters, services and shelters for women and families who are homeless. All numbers were verified in 2000.

Women of Means is headed by Roseanna H. Means, M.D. Dr.Means trained at the Brigham & Women's Hospital and has spent 16 years in the Boston area as a primary care physician. Since 1990, she has devoted a significant percentage of her clinical time to caring for the homeless, including several yeas as a Medical Director of a residential recuperative facility for homeless persons. In 1998, she elected to concentrate her energies on the most vulnerable of this population, the women. Women of Means, Inc. was founded on the knowledge that fear, confusion and mistrust keep many homeless bureaucratic barriers, Dr.Means and her associates have been able to significantly improve the health of hundreds of women.
