What does the term chronic Homelessness mean?

For the vast majority of people who become homeless, it is a brief, one-time experience that usually resolves itself in a matter of weeks or month.

Chronic homelessness is long-term homelessness that accompanied by a disability (e.g. mental illness, physical disability, traumatic brain injury, substance abuse disorder).
