  • On the street
  • In an abandoned building, trailer, or other inadequate accommodations, or
  • Doubled up with friends or relatives because you cannot find or afford housing
  • Living in a primary nighttime residence that is a public or private place not designed for or ordinarily used as regular sleeping accommodation for human beings
  • Abandoned in hospitals
  • Living in cars, parks, public spaces, abandoned buildings, substandard housing, bus or train stations, or similar settings
  • Children living in a trailer that does not have accommodations for all the people living there
  • Children living with relatives or friends while parents are incarcerated or in the hospital
  • Unaccompanied youth who are not living with their parents

Then, your preschool-aged and school-aged children may qualify for the Families in Transition program.
