Kalamazoo based TV channel 3 is taking a hard look at the issues of families and homelessness.
In Kalamazoo County there are a number of families dealing with incredible stress as they try to keep a roof over their heads.
On Friday we spoke to several families who say they are running out of options. Some who stay in hotels and can't afford the rent, while others have too many people to safely stay in one room, all face challenges that continue to mount.
“It's four kids and two adults,” said Angela Fluellyn.
Fluellyn says the one bedroom motel room is the best she can do right now, she says her weekly rent is going up to $200.
“Nobody has too much income besides cash assistance, apply for jobs, no guarantee that anybody gets employment,” said Fluellyn.
Fluellyn says she's been busy filling out applications, but currently the family relies on government assistance for rent and the food bank for food.
