A "Home Bum" is a common term for a homeless person who, instead of travelling or working towards improving his situation (as a Hobo would), typically sits in the same places every day and has a predictable routine. Another common term to define "Home Bum" is also "Homeguard", which is used to describe someone who bogarts the resources provided by a city for it's homeless population.
That Home Bum is always at the soup kitchen on Sundays.

That's Old John the Home Bum's trashcan, I wouldn't take the pop bottle out of it if I were you.
