Those who are forced into being without an abode and/or dwelling are all to quickly deemed less than citizens. In many regards are even treated as less than human. How about thinking that we are NOT homeless, nor last-class citizens or non-human? We think, have feelings, have intellect and struggle. How would you feel to be thought of as anything less than human just for circumstances due to those of profit/gain/control?

"Houseless", not homeless!
The video below is not so well done, but in it you can view a man and woman roughing it.
In reality, on any given night about any part of the world, there can be found humans living rough.

Homeless battle the brutal cold in Latvia
Jan. 24 - Homeless people feel the chill as cold spell blankets
Latvia in snow. Rough Cut (no reporter narration).
ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION)
STORY: Latvia is hit by a cold spell with frigid temperatures forcing
an increasing number of homeless people to search refuge in shelters
to avoid frostbites or even death caused by the cold. Social workers
from Riga social shelters drive around the city and invite homeless
people to spend the nights in shelters. But the social workers also
admit that many homeless are resilient to leave their accommodations
in abandoned buildings and garages. They go to the shelters only as a
very last resort. According to the Latvian weather forecast,
temperatures are expected to rise in late January with another cold
front due in February.
