People experiencing homelessness are three-to-four-times as likely to die prematurely as their housed counterparts, according to a study by the National Health Care for the Homeless Council. In 2008, it is estimated that 50 people without housing died of natural causes, murder, suicide and/or poor health conditions in Albuquerque, New Mexico.
