What It's Like to Be a Homeless Mother

What It's Like to Be a Homeless Mother

It isn't easy, living as I do. I am a single mother with two kids living out of our vehicle. I have to be careful with what I say to co-workers, friends and family. They don't fully understand or know why I don't invite people over or why my kids don't have sleepovers. I've learned to get by on naps because I can't afford to get a full night's sleep. Although I work two jobs often, most of what I make is spent on gas. This is how it's been for the last seven years and I have no idea when things will change.
