Why do homeless people tend to congregate in large groups?
They all seem to live in large groups.

Maybe because they don't have homes to go home to?

Safety in numbers.

For the same reason people gather in lifeboats. Usually there's no place else left to go.

For companionship, they connect with those sharing similar experiences. Same as any demographic in our population, like attracts like.

For the same reasons we have cities and towns. People go where resources are available (support services like temporary housing or food banks), and where they are in a community, both for social interaction as well as safety. People who are homeless have a disproportionally large amount of violence committed against them because they are seen as vulnerable or “undesirable.” As such it is safer to for them to have a community to protect each other. Additionally they will often congregate because they get “forcibly removed” from anywhere else they try to stay.
At the end of the day they are human just like the rest of us and are just seeking the essentials to survive.
