What happens when a family has nowhere to live? Some families have lost their houses because of financial difficulties or natural disasters and don't have the resources to find new homes. Their lives become a struggle to meet their basic needs. Some live in shelters, some with friends or relatives, some on the streets or in their cars. Many have trouble staying together. Can children growing up in these families really survive and have good lives? Are there good things these family members have learned from their situations? This book tells the stories of several families who have experienced homelessness and tries to answer some of those questions.
