A student is considered to be "homeless" if, due to a lack of housing they must reside in a shelter, motel, vehicle or campground, on the street, in abandoned buildings or doubled-up with relatives or friends due to economic hardship or eviction. A student can become homeless due to a house fire or other natural disaster resulting in a temporary or permanent loss of their home.
