What is homelessness?

Someone without reliable shelter is considered homeless.

Most families and individuals without a stable, safe place to live transition among different settings, including short-stay motels, doubling-up with friends or family members, sleeping in cars, or in transitional housing or shelters. Less than one-fifth of people experiencing homelessness live on the streets.

Reasons for homelessness

Job loss, high housing costs, changed family situations and illnesses are among the most common causes of homelessness. One unfortunate event can push families and individuals out of their homes. Unaffordable, inequitable or ineffective systems can make it difficult to move past challenging personal circumstances. Learn more about some of the causes of homelessness below.

“I see people all of the time who turn up their noses to people who are homeless. I used to be one of those people,” said Arvada resident, Jack. “You really don’t understand where they’re coming from until you’re in their shoes. And if you don’t think it could happen to you, you’re wrong.”
