The number of people experiencing homelessness (PEH) in the United States has increased in the past 5 years. PEH have a higher disease burden and early mortality compared to people who are housed. Stigma adds to the burden of disease and disease management for PEH. In this article the authors review stigma, define housing and homelessness, describe the health and health care disparities PEH experience, and using the socio-ecological model as a framework, offer opportunities for nurses to intervene in efforts to decrease the stigma that PEH and housing instability encounter to improve health outcomes.
