What is “homelessness”?

The classic definition of homelessness refers to a lack of one or more of the following three basic amenities:

  1. An adequate dwelling place: security, personal safety, protection from the elements, private sleeping arrangements, facilities for cooking meals
  2. Security of tenure in the dwelling place: not subject to eviction without notice
  3. Access to spaces for social relationships: places to invite friends to sit and talk
