Home is where the heart is. But you need walls and a roof to make a house.
And I’m not portly. I’m un-thin.
Tomayto, tomahto! Homeless, unhoused! Sounds like the work of politicians or social workers.
This is actually one of those nearly reasonable distinctions. Around here we have some folks who are living in (and out of) their own vehicles. Not quite the sort of thing that we traditionally called “homeless” because that vehicle IS a home. But they are without housing.
PS: Some of those vehicle dwellers include school kids. Now imagine how well THEY have been doing at zooming to school. Right.
A rose by any other name…. I believe when janitors became sanitary engineers, the scope of their duties did not change. Perhaps some felt better presenting that occupational name at the many cocktail parties they all attend. Certainly more than I do! :-)

They are not shelter-secure.
A slab, by any other name, would be as unwelcome a bed.
