Heather fell in love in Fresno.
Her marriage hit a rough spot when her husband's drinking became disruptive, violent and intractable. After making the hardest decision of her life, she took her two girls and fled.
They wound up in a Women and Children's shelter in San Jose. After they used up their allotted sixty days at the shelter, Heather pooled her resources with two other women she met at the shelter and they got a room at a local motel.
Heather estimates she has another few days worth of money left for the motel. She is on the waiting list at the city's only other shelter for families with children.
