Ondrea C. never thought about what it must be like to be homeless. For years, the single mother of three made her own way — working a good job, going to church, and trying her best to make a good life for her kids. Everything was perfect. Until one day when it all came crashing down.
“I lost my job, we got evicted from our place, and we didn’t have anywhere to go." It was devastating. For the next few months, Ondrea’s family spent their time bouncing in and out of friend’s homes, crashing on couches. But the toll was hard, especially on the kids.
“They were starting not to do very well in school — which is understandable, because how can you focus in class when your home life is all over the place?" It was a bad situation, and Ondrea knew she had to get her family out of it soon. But it wasn’t until she ran into a friend at church that she heard about a placed called Homeward Bound.
