Chronically Homeless people are those who have been on the street for an extended period of time. They often suffer from mental illness, addiction, and other debilitating conditions. Chronic homelessness knows no age group and ranges from teen runaways to senior citizens. Chronically Homeless people live in a variety of places, including encampments, parks, abandoned buildings, and other places not safe for human habitation.
