My friend, Becky Blanton, spent a year as a homeless person, and last summer she was one of the seven-minute speakers at TED in Oxford, England. Here is the video of her presentation. Blanton just published an eBook, and you are welcome to download it. It's called "Homeless for the Holidays," and a terrific book for people interested in ensuring that homeless people have the best possible holiday. http://homeless4theholidays.com/index_files/Homeless4holidaysFINAL.pdf
