Homeschool Mama: A Cracked Pot

If you knew me you may know that there was a time in my life that I was homeless for almost 2 yrs. Starting when my two older boys were 7 months old and 2 yrs old.  I had chosen to move home.  Which I blogged a bit about here.  I had moved home for a few months.  Due to space issues and not able to get help from any agency I had to move into a shelter.  I was in a shelter for a fairly short time and then was accepted into the YWCA Family Village.  A transitional housing unit in Redmond, WA.  There was an 18 month limit and you had to either be in school or working to live there.  I was able to go to school and have it paid for by private funding.  The daycare was on site of the building so most convenient! That was paid for by the state/Crazy Homeschool Mama. More here.

Question: Have you ever been homeless? Or near homeless?
