Kelsey’s life turned upside-down at age 23 when her mother passed away. Her immediate family fell apart as she struggled through a period of depression. She is the primary breadwinner for her two daughters, but they were evicted from their apartment after getting behind on rent. She and her children stayed with her sister as a temporary fix. Together with the fact that she could not keep her job while at the same time caring for her children there actually was not enough room at her sister’s home she ended up on the street.
