This paper explores the “messy middle ground” of the UK homeless services system. It charts the apparent similarities between developments in San Francisco and changes to the management of street homelessness bought in to effect by the New Labour government in the UK. In the final part of the paper it presents a re-reading of recent changes to the management of street homelessness in the UK through a postsecular lens. It suggests that this lens provides the possibility for a much more optimistic reading of homeless services and of the grammars of homelessness and urban (in)justice more broadly
