Teaming up to give children and their families the security of home

They’re often unnoticed, the children waiting for school buses in front of cheap hotels and motels that serve as temporary quarters for homeless families. Others down on their luck seek respite with relatives and friends, find sanctuary in homeless shelters, or sleep in cars parked at your neighborhood Walmart and elsewhere.

I chatted with a young mother with six children this week who was grateful that a St. Petersburg shelter took them in when there was nowhere else to go. She left Alabama last March to be close to family, but was forced to move from her sister’s rented house when the landlord got wind of their living arrangement.
