I was homeless and unemployed for around three years. Applied for jobs that I was very clearly qualified for, and watched as my application was "filed" in the garbage after they read the address line.
My homelessness began due to unrealistic expectations and requirements set forth by courts for probation and therapy. After serving my time I was released with nowhere to go, no-one to go to for help, and nothing other than the clothes on my back. Deathbymonkeys says that things are prioritized as more important than housing by the homeless. That is true for some, attempting to stay free and be able to eat are much more important than a roof. How nice it must be for them to not be in this type of situation with no-one to fall back on for help.
