All parents want a safe, stable, loving home for their children. Grassroots leader Elizabeth Maldonado, a mother of four, is no different. Although her journey to housing had been tough, her desire to provide a real home for her children was stronger. Today, the family of five shares a 3-bedroom apartment on the North Side of Chicago where they care for some pets, her oldest son bakes, her daughter paints, and Elizabeth proudly displays her art all over the apartment.
Elizabeth and her kids finally feel at home.
