I have recently started working at an area homeless shelter and I was wondering if anyone knew what saint/s were patron/s on the homeless? I'd like to find an icon for my home and office.

Christ had no place of His own while on earth:

Foxes have holes and birds of the air have nests, but the Son of Man has nowhere to lay His head. (Luke 9:58)

I did a search and the first thing that came up was St. Xenia.

I might also think that St. John the Forerunner would also be of some inspiration.
