We Are Visible… Menopausebarbee Monday Spotlight on a Homeless Mother

As we prepare for Mother’s Day this weekend, we want to introduce you to a courageous mother who only has one wish and that is to get her family a home.

Imagine for eight years, living in a van with nearly 300,000 miles along with your two daughters. Trying to navigate a hot shower, meals and life’s tangible necessities that we all take for granted is compounded by the devastation of calling shelter after shelter to discover they are yet again full beyond capacity and wait listed. Trying to find steady employment is challenging because childcare costs surpass what you can earn in wages.

This Mother’s Day, let’s reach out and support your local agencies who are making a difference for these struggling families. In Seattle, Plymouth Housing and Mary’s Place are two organizations making a difference.”
