    There is a plan to correct and help the many problems of all humans. There is a plan created in our behalf.

    To answer your concerns that may effect many people and already have , soon changes will take place ,the world is an example of a bucket full of holes, homelessness is one of the holes ,As you have stated this could happen to anyone, but not for long .
    Even though this and many other injustices are happening ,There is a limit !  it will end .
    Notice what is written.

    One greater then us was Jesus ,he himself faced this ,even though he was of royalty being God's own son.

    On earth he says at Reference Bible Lu 9:58 And Jesus said to him: “Foxes have dens and birds of heaven have roosts, but the Son of man has nowhere to lay down his head.”

    Because the world was in the power of the wicked one for a short amount of time.

    Notice Reference Bible Mt 4:9 and he (satan).said to him: “All these things I will give you if you fall down and do an act of worship to me.”

    Jesus refused .

    Psalm 37:9-11
    For evil men will be done away with,
    But those hoping in Jehovah will possess the earth.

    10 Just a little while longer, and the wicked will be no more;
    You will look at where they were,
    And they will not be there.

    11 But the meek will possess the earth,
    And they will find exquisite delight in the abundance of peace.

    the Heavenly Father will undo all the damage done by satan and his followers.

    Reference Bible Isa 65:21 And they will certainly build houses and have occupancy; and they will certainly plant vineyards and eat [their] fruitage. 

    We have a wonderful hope ahead.

    The first thing I'd do is make a list of friends and family members who might allow me to stay with them until I could get on my feet.
    Too often people who love someone have no idea that person is in trouble! Maybe it's pride that keeps people from reaching out. Family and friends should be a part of everyone's emotional security net.
    Secondly I'd go to the library and research every available government program in my city or state that is designed to help folks in my situation. Many folks have no idea what is available to them!
    Thirdly I'd research not for profit organizations who could help.
    Fourth I'd register with multiple temp agencies, unemployment office to find work even if it's not in my particular field, (assembly, warehouse, janitorial) or telemarketer..etc
    The only cure I know for depression is taking ACTION.
    When one believes they have (no options) that's when they want to give up. There are some foreign countries looking to hire people to teach English and they provide the teachers housing and food. It pays to have a "global approach" to resolving problems. Historically it was common for people to re-locate for better opportunities. Today many folks won't consider moving to a different city or state! Every economy cycle resembles "Swiss Cheese". If for example there are no jobs in Detroit there may be jobs in Phoenix or Alaska. You can research cities boasting a "booming economy" at the library.
    Lastly I'd try to view my situation as part of a bigger journey. I can't tell you how many times I've gotten knocked for a loop and year or two later I'm better off! I find myself saying: "If this hadn't happen I would never have done that which led me to blah blah and so on." I always tell myself: "A year from now I'll be laughing about this."
    This plants the seed in my mind that my situation is (temporary).
    Every ending is a new beginning!

    I have someone close to my heart who has been made homeless with a young child, a dog, no partner and no money of course (we are in the UK). Firstly the dog had to go to a family member and still remains with that family member, secondly everything in the house stayed, except for all items of value which family members took and put into storage, the person concerned took only what could be carried in a suitcase and the child. After spending a day at the Housing Benefit office the person concerned and the child were sent to a hotel room which they stayed in for approximately three months.
    So I would say finally the five items were:- The suitcase filled with minimum of clothing and essentials, A family photograph, x 2 coats one for the adult and one for the child and an umbrella. This is very true, this is what they took.
