What do I do if I become homeless?

Answer

It’s hard to imagine how someone can go from having a home one day to being out on the street the next. However, homeless shelters provide temporary housing for people who don’t have a place to stay. Also, Public housing units, from apartment buildings to individual homes, are available to very low-income families, the elderly and disabled people.

There are laws to help you, whether you're being unfairly evicted by your landlord, or you or your children are not safe where you live. If you are homeless or likely to become homeless through no fault of your own, the local council may have to offer you somewhere else to stay or to live. This will depend on your circumstances.
