Defining Homelessness

Homelessness affects people we all know.

Homelessness means different things to different people.

Health Care for the Homeless uses the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services definition of homelessness. In short, this definition spans individuals and families who are:

  • on the streets
  • in shelters or transitional housing
  • in abandoned buildings or vehicles
  • staying with friends, neighbors or relatives
  • in any other unstable or non-permanent living situation

    Homelessness through the lens of those without homes

    James Judkins, Client

    “When we speak of homelessness, I speak of a person who doesn’t have a key to his or her own place.”
