This cross-sectional study provides a deeper understanding of how the experience of homelessness affects occupational engagement and quality of life. Health-related disparities among persons experiencing homelessness and their implications for functioning in daily life were analyzed through the World Health Organization Disability Assessment Schedule 2.0. Results indicate that the emotional burden of health conditions had the greatest impact on daily functioning. Highly affected domains included participation, mobility, and life activities.
