Define Homelessness

This post was inspired by a discussion with my father about being homeless versus being a street-person.


What is your definition of homelessness?

In your opinion is there a difference between being homeless and being a street-person?

If person A finds him/herself suddenly with no fixed address, has all their belongings in storage and their daily needed items in their car; but is sleeping on a mattress on the floor of friends' houses while the person does not have a home, is person A homeless?
Does it make a difference if person A does not have a home for a short period of time, say 6 weeks?
ETA: Person A is actively seeking a permanent home, applies for accommodation every day of the 6 weeks that person A is without a fixed address.

I grew up in Southern California and have been to Disneyland dozens of times. If I was going to be in Orlando, Florida already, would you say I could skip Disney World? My brother wants to visit the Universal Parks and I want to go to Epcot and already that's seeming like a lot of money, just wondering if Disney World is worth it.
