Shouldn't this be homelessness?
Talk about it here.
The homeless were people so poor that they didn't have homes. Homeless people were sometimes called tramps.
During the Great Depression, many homeless people in America lived in shanty towns called Hoovervilles. In 1930, Hooverville residents in New York City were abducted by the Cult of Skaro and converted into pig slaves. (TV: Daleks in Manhattan, Evolution of the Daleks)
Prior to 1971, the documentary Cathy Come Home publicised the issue of homelessness in London. In response, the charity Shelter was established and set up several halfway houses for the homeless in the city. During Dodo Chaplet's period of homelessness following her time at the Glasshouse, she regularly stayed at one such house before moving in with James Stevens. (PROSE: Who Killed Kennedy)
In the 1970s, a tramp named Pigbin Josh was captured and killed by Axos. (TV: The Claws of Axos) Some years later, a tramp was run over by a hovercraft driven by the Third Doctor, who was chasing Lupton. (TV: Planet of the Spiders)

In 2012, Henry van Statten, who often had his employees mind-wiped and abandoned on the streets of various cities, suffered this fate himself at the hands of Diana Goddard as punishment for all the deaths caused by his Dalek. (TV: Dalek)
In the 2010s, homeless people in South Wales were targeted by Oblation. The programme involved reconfigured Sorvix fire drones, which gave the homeless the choice of death or injection with experimental drugs. Tyler Steele was one such person, resorting to prostitution in order to make money. He remarked that regular people ignore the plights of the homeless and himself ignored the existence of a homeless friend after being set up at the Hub. Oblation ended when Tyler tagged its creator, Ben, who was burnt to death. (AUDIO: Hostile Environment)
