Lisa and Lexus

Featured Video Play Icon

Lisa, and her daughter Lexus, are the face of homelessness you don’t normally see, but you need to see!

After trying to stay with family, Lisa had to return to Missouri for medical reasons. Pregnant and unable to work, after resources ran out, Lisa and Lexus ended up in a weekly rate hotel in Wentzville, just outside of St Louis.

Low and no income families living in weekly-rate hotels are a serious crisis. Lisa and Lexus were lucky to find a good hotel through the support of Paul Kruze, but even though this hotel is a little better than most, it’s still no place to raise kids.

Although she was pinching hard, Lexus was so cute trying to play videographer, I had to take a photo to share with you all:

Special thanks to Paul Kruse, who helps these families every single day of the year.
