                  nighttime residence and residing in one of the following living situations:
                      Shelter

                      Motel/ single room occupancy hotel (SRO) which has a communal bathroom and kitchen
                      Doubled-up/tripled up living situation which is an apartment/house with more than one

                  the FYIT Liaison of being in transition (homeless) on the first day of school.
