It's called poverty

When you are quite poor you don't have funds to look for another residence, to buy it or put down deposits for rent, you can't afford a moving company or a van to move your possessions, the types of jobs you will look for require that you show up and fill out an application, not apply and interview online, get an offer, negotiate compensation and relocation funds. You don't have the gas money. You don't have much of any "money" and EBT cards can only get you food. You might have family to move in with or perhaps a good friend to try and help you. Failing that your focus is day-to-day: find food, keep from freezing in winter.

Now please don't let the next question be "why don't they just use their credit cards?".
