Imagine you are alone raising four children aged 7 to 16 and you have no other choice but to live in a small two-bed motel room…and you have been there for ten months. No play space, no kitchen, no privacy. This is precisely the situation of Lowertown resident, Cynthia.

Learn more about her story and how the LCRC lends a hand in an article on page 12 of the Lowertown Echo.
