Definiton of homelessness

  1. An unsheltered person who resides in a place not meant for human habitation: (e.g., cars, tents, parks, sidewalks, abandoned buildings, streets, parks)

  2. A sheltered person who resides in

  • Emergency shelters

  • Transitional housing (e.g., for homeless persons who originally came from the streets or emergency shelters)

  • Residential programs for runaway/homeless youth

  • Hotel, motel, or apartment voucher arrangements paid for by a public/private agency because the person or family is homeless

IMPORTANT:

Persons living in “doubled up” situations (e.g., multiple households living under one roof due to loss of housing by one or more parties) and those persons residing in hotels/motels who pay for it themselves are not considered “literally homeless” by HUD for the purposes of the Point-In-Time Homeless Count.
