Michelle and kids

Featured Video Play Icon

Michelle lives in an RV with her kids in a church parking lot near Eugene, Oregon.

Knowing she was about to lose her apartment, Michelle took to Craigslist and bought a used RV. At first, they tried to live in the mountains. But everything was too far away.

Sadly, this families story is becoming the norm, not the exception. Mobile homelessness is growing in communities all over the U.S.

Michelle has only one wish – a home!

Special thanks to St. Vincent de Paul

*** shortly after I posted this story St. Vincent de Paul tweet me that this family is now in housing.
