What’s the difference between being homeless and Half-Homeless? The Half-Homeless are fortunate enough to have a car, truck, van, bus or RV they can live in. By day, the Half-Homeless use their cars as transportation to jobs or to look for work, as they try to get a more permanent roof over their heads. By night, they have to find a place hidden from the police to park and sleep.
Typically the Half-Homeless don’t think of themselves as homeless. They don’t go to the shelters. They don’t ask for or know there should be help. It is a desperate lonely, struggle to survive and be independent.
Due to the combination of the job and housing crisis, tens of thousands of Americans are losing their homes becoming Half-Homeless everyday.
