According to dictionary, the word "home" means;
A person's native place or own country. The place in which one's domestic affections are centered. The place or region where something is native or most common. …And etc. So it's somewhat strange to call those who live in a street, homeless. In fact they just don't have own houses thus we should call them houseless, shouldn't we?
