Homeless means lacking fixed, regular, and adequate housing. You may be homeless if you are living in shelters, parks,
motels, hotels, public spaces, camping grounds, cars, abandoned buildings, or temporarily living with other people
because you have nowhere else to go. Also, if you are living in any of these situations and fleeing an abusive parent,
you may be considered homeless even if your parent would otherwise provide a place to live.
Unaccompanied means you are not living in the physical custody of your parent or guardian.
