|MIRA connects individuals who are at-risk of, literally and/or are chronically homeless to appropriate agencies. It would be worthy to note the HUD definition of 'chronic homelessness' is as follows: "either (1) an unaccompanied homeless individual with a disabling condition who has been continuously homeless for a year or more, OR (2) an unaccompanied individual with a disabling condition who has had at least four episodes of homelessness in the past three years."
Furthermore, in its definition of a chronically homeless person, HUD defines the term "homeless" as "a person sleeping in a place not meant for human habitation (e.g. living on the streets, in a car, etc.) OR living in a homeless emergency shelter."
