Homelessness has long been recognized as a worldwide problem that affects the poorest people in both developed and developing countries. Homelessness affects thousands of people in Malaysia, regardless of their age group, race, education, professions, and geographical regions. All aspects of the human experience are significantly influenced by human needs that promote well-being. However, for the homeless people, basic needs such as food, water, healthcare, education, and even shelters have often been difficult to be met. The study aims to investigate the factors contributing to the well-being of homelessness.  The study employed a quantitative method using Structural Equation Modelling (SEM) and data was collected using purposive sampling from 102 respondents from the city of Ipoh, Perak, Malaysia.  Findings indicate that social relationships and skills have a significant influence on the well-being of homeless people.
