You have to have money to move.
Dubuquedogtrainer I agree.Perhaps putting aside money when one is getting unemployment funds, working odd jobs, asking family for help. Plan ahead for when the unemployment runs out.
True, all good ideas, but some folks have depleted resources for no fault of their own such as serious illness that precludes gainful employment, age (which negatively affects the job hunt), etc.
Both my husband and I became unemployed at the same time from six figures to zero. We had a plan B only because we were high income earners. Those whose jobs just barely pay the bills don't stand a chance. Unemployment benefits pay at poverty levels.

You are so right. I don't have the means to help with shelter, but whenever I come in contact with someone who is hungry, I always provide a meal for them. It's the least I can do.
