The Intersectionality of Homelessness
More than 82,000 people experience homelessness in Chicago each year. For each and every one of these individuals, homelessness did not just happen. It was the result of a matrix of social, systemic, and personal factors such as economic inequality, discrimination, physical and mental health, job insecurity, and sexual orientation.

This is called the intersectionality of homelessness .

Intersectionality shapes the experience of homelessness—what it looks and feels like is different for each and every one of these community members. For some, it may mean literally sleeping on the streets; for others, it may mean couch-surfing—bouncing from one temporary living situation to another.
