Hi my name is Heather and my husband was on today talking on the show and I just want to clerify some stuff. We did follow the rules of the shelter. Our son is enrolled in school and unfortunatlely has missed 2 days of school this year. And last year missed no days of school he gets straight A's. His teachers and the school are awear that we are in a family shelter. Actually our son is being tested for TAG. We have done everything plus more that the shelters have asked us to do unfortunately we have not found work. I would have had 4 jobs but i dont have my drivers license. we are out there everyday looking for work. Unfortunately only one of us could go one the show today. Us being homeless has effected all of us. It is a great amount of stress. they asked Daniel today if Ty tells people that we are homeless. The answer to that is no he told the kids on the bus that the shelter he got droped off at after school was where his parents worked. But I do wonder if you have children yourself and would you send your 5th grader to school when he/she has not had a shower in over a week and doesnt have clean clothes. I have read some of the comments on this page and some of the adults are not very kind and understanding about people being homeless so how do you think kids would be toward a child who is dirty and homeless! I never thought we would be homeless. This is the first time in my life I havent worked. I had held the same job for 8 years.
