  4. Homeless is when people do not have a permanent shelter.They roam around trying to find shelter during bad weather. They also try to make money on the streets. Sometimes this is because people evict them from apartments or homes because they arn't able to pay the rent/mortage.

  9. Homelessness is living without the proper shelter. Homelessness is being without a house, an apartment, or a proper home. Homelessness is not having a stable roof over your head to protect you. It means you do not have a safe place to go where you are welcome that you can call home. That's what I think homelessness is.

  12. I think homelessness can be found in two forms. One is to not have somewhere to live another is to have somwhere to stay but not be at home there. For example, Johnny has somewhere to stay but not be wanted there. Both of these are bad because they put people in a state of poverty.

  15. To be homeless means that you don't have the money or support to have a home, or you got kicked out by the government. it doesn't exactly mean that you're living on the streets, i just think it means that you don't have a place of your own. For example if your living with your parents becuase you can't support yourself means that you are somewhat homeless. Homeless people usually don't have jobs. The case isn't always becuase they can't get one it might be because they got laid off. By Anya J.

  33. I think that homelessness is when you do not have a home because you get kicked out, or you just have really bad credit or something and no one will sell you a home, give you a loan, or rent you an apartment/house. You don't have enough money to pay for food and you wind up doing odd jobs and pretty much anything that will pay you in any way.

  59. To be homeless means to not have a home. It happends sometimes when the person loses there job. Some people go to homeless shelter and free food places. It is sad because sometimes I see poeple on the sidewalk with a can next to them saying, "Spare Change". I have heard of poeple faking that kind of stuff though. If i was homeless I would save up some money and then go to an all you can eat place, like Cici's until I found a job.

  71. I believe that homelessness is to be without shelter. More than likely you either do not have a job if you are homeless, or you do not have a job that can withhold all the payments you have to make on a house. Many homeless people also lack the adequate amount of food and water to keep them alive.
