Homelessness is not a choice.
It is an experience that can happen to anyone, and it looks different for every person. In fact, someone could have shelter and still be experiencing homelessness. That’s because homelessness encompasses a range of living conditions from “sleeping rough,” couch-surfing and shelters, to having a home but being at risk of losing it.
