WHEELS OF HOPE

WHERE THERE IS A WHEEL THERE IS A WAY

What is the actual Definition of Homeless?

What does it mean to be homeless - living in a shelter? Sleeping on a friends couch? A family living in supportive housing? Often government and local organizations have varying definitions of what homelessness is, which impacts how they structure their program funding. This includes when someone is literally sleeping on the street to someone who might be one paycheck away from losing their home, to someone who is fleeing from a domestic violence situation.
