couch homelessness
 n.— «While there’s not a lot of pure homelessness in the Valley, there are a lot of people suffering what’s called “couch homelessness.”…Those are the people who can’t afford a place of their own, so they’re stuck living with friends and relatives or renting an apartment until they get evicted for not paying rent.» —“Bridge seeking sponsors, participants for Fifth Annual Sleep Out” by Amanda Baird Morning Times (Sayre, Pennsylvania) Oct. 19, 2007.
