I met LaQuisha and her daughter at a rotating shelter near Detroit. Although living in a homeless shelter can be challenging LaQuisha works hard to look at the bright side. She was scared at first. But as she made friends with people in the same situation she changed.

I love the rotating shelter system. I visited this one the year before. As I listened to LaQuisha’s story, and how her mom kicked her out, I could not help but be reminded of Dawn’s story and the similarities.
