It may sound surprising but these days almost anyone can become homeless.

Homelessness is now recognised to be more than just someone living on the street (rough sleepers) and includes severe overcrowding at home and couch surfing. Lack of housing is responsible for 40% of cases of homelessness. Every day homelessness services are forced to turn away 99 people (one in six) due to a lack of housing and resources.
