People experiencing homelessness are among the most vulnerable and marginalised groups in our society. There is no such thing as an average or normal homeless person — they are all unique with their own strengths, hopes, backgrounds, feelings and motivations and all have a unique story to tell about their route into homelessness. Most also have a vision of a life out of homelessness. Just as these personal stories differ, so too do the health conditions experienced by homeless people.
