I have had individuals sings to me and even a group of kids sing, but this is the first time I've had a family sing to me.

After a 10 year abusive relationship Monica grabbed her 5 kids, a few suitcases, filled the car with food and ran as far as she could. At first she tried to stay with relatives, but the stress of couch surfing with such a large family became too much. She did get an apartment for a short while but the she couldn't keep up with the cost. Monica and her 5 kids ended up homeless. After going from shelter to shelter they finally ended up at LA Family Housing.

Monica says she knows why a lot of women go back to violent relationships because it's hard raising kids by yourself. Monica is determined to make a success out of her new life and she plans on staying strong and staying safe. I have a lot of respect for Monica. I can't even imagine how much courage it takes a young mother to make such a drastic and important change for her family!

Monica told me she is a licensed cosmetologist and plans on going back to school. Since she is now in Los Angeles, Monica would like to give acting a try. If you are a casting agent or know of anyone who is, please give her a chance. I can tell you Monica is smart and full of energy and her whole family is adorable.


Very special thanks to LA Family Housing http://www.lafh.org
