@wmw: This is not a Macmillan Thesaurus entry, but an explanation of the meaning of "of no fixed abode"

"ohne festen Wohnsitz" is an official term, "without permanent home" is not.

@wmw: Woher nimmst Du die Überzeung, dass die in LEO eingetragene Formulierung "without permanent home" falsch sei?

I'd also expect an 'a' wherever people are writing in complete sentences, i.e. in standard writing not using headline style. 'Home' is countable. I have 'a home'; I don't have 'home'.

2 Google hits for it on US government sites
5 on US university sites http://www.google.com/search?client=opera&rls=en&q=%22without+permanent+home%22+...
None on the Washington Post site
None on the NY Times site
None on the WHO site
None on the National Coalition for the Homeless site (USA)

Can't find anything suggesting that this is in use in the USA. I would guess that many of the Google hits are headlines and other telegram-style uses or people accidentally dropping the 's' on 'homes'.
