I guess the intent is to emphasize that people who don't have housing still have roots in the communities in which they live. Which isn't always true, and when you're without housing far away from friends and family, it's even worse.
I also think people on the right love to make excuses by pointing to whatever meager means you can lay claim to. The way they get upset if they see a poor person with a cell phone or fancy sneakers. So emphasizing that someone isn't homeless because they have a tent or a car to live in and are surrounded by friends and family, seems counterproductive to pushing for protections and aid for people in dire poverty.
This leaves a bad taste in my mouth but maybe I'm just having a kneejerk reaction.
After long, hard work, the message we intercepted from space was decoded:
"We apologize for being silent three millennia. We are still here."
Fifteen years later another message was caught, going the other way:
"We are always glad to hear from you, no matter how long it takes."
