Some examples of temporary housing include:

  • Sharing the housing of others due to loss of housing, economic hardship or other similar reason
  • Living in motels, hotels, trailer parks, camping grounds
  • Living in emergency or transitional shelters
  • Abandoned in hospitals
  • Living in a public or private place not designed for sleeping
  • Living in cars, parks, abandoned buildings, bus or train stations, etc.
  • Migratory living in circumstances described above
