About This Website

When you’re a single mom, life’s already difficult. However, if you lose your housing, everywhere you turn you hit speed bumps and brick walls. Your kids are your most important focus, but you and your kids don’t know where to turn for help. Day-to-day survival takes up all your time.

No one gives any practical advice for how to get through what is for most the toughest circumstance ever—losing your place to live. Keeping your kids safe while searching for a safe place to live becomes your total focus. Unless you’ve been through this hardship, you don’t really understand how difficult this situation is.

That’s what makes The Three Melissas – The Practical Guide for Surviving Family Homelessness such an important handbook. It’s filled with tips from three mothers, all named Melissa, who experienced homelessness with their kids. Their advice is based on real experiences and they don’t hold back. They courageously share their wisdom to help parents make their difficult times a little easier for themselves and their children.

This website expands the tips in The Three Melissas – The Practical Guide for Surviving Family Homelessness to include resources that will be added continuously. Additions include briefs, slide presentations, podcasts, and links to other websites.
