  • Individuals who are living in hotels or motels or in campgrounds or trailer
    parks that are not viewed as year-
    round homes because they do not have accommodations, such as heat or running water;

  • Individuals who are living in emergency shelters or who have been abandoned in hospitals;

  • Individuals who are living in cars, parks or public spaces.
