Abstract

Date Presented 03/28/20

This phenomenological, qualitative pilot study aimed to gain insight into the lived experiences of homeless mothers participating in leisure craft groups. Information was obtained using semistructured interviews that sought to explore what meaning was derived from attendance. Informants from the study echoed content from literature regarding benefits of leisure participation. This research supports the application of occupational justice by expanding services to an under-served population.
