In any case, more information regarding the reasons they are homeless in the first place is needed.
My guess - my hope - is that the parents recognize this perversity as more destructive than shooting heroin, and out of love and concern say something like:
"Son/daughter, we love you, and we hate to see you choose this path. We've tried to help you overcome this problem, and will always be here to help some more. But we can not and will not permit this to go on while you live under our roof. We may not be able to prevent you from destroying your life, but we will not let you destroy the rest of this family in the process."

("Thou shouldst not have been old, till thou hadst been wise.")
In my book, throwing a son/daughter out of the home has already shown the parents’ failure. Such action is nothing but washing hand in the name of ‘saving the rest of the family’. The parents simply cannot deal with their own issue, i.e., the shame of failure in raising their kids.
But again, it depends on how old the kids are, and whether they have talked it out thoroughly.
Homosexuality is what St. Paul would call ‘thorn in the flesh’ for Christians. Something that is perennially stays with the person, regardless one’s belief whether it’s by choice or by birth. The same applies to the person who has the tendency and his/her parents/family members. St. Paul said he cannot get rid of it. He just needs to deal with it.
