Living with friends, others, etc is technically considered homeless.. yes. To receive the housing subsidy we have, we had to be homeless and that was our situation 5 years ago.

I learned to stock pile ice and water in containers so we could cook and drink for the next time we had no water. It was rather icky in there, even though I vaccuumed the carpets every day. And no heat - and it was getting cold. I found a heating blanket and we actually needed it on most of the night. On top of that, we'd overstayed our welcome and had no means of going anywhere else. The state wouldn't help - what a nightmare.
There is a difference between living in poverty conditions and being truly homeless.

That's true, but she did say that she had overstayed her welcome and had nowhere to go, so it sounds like she was homeless AND living in very poor conditions.
