That's tough. Not all those stories end well :(

That's rough, but sounds like there's a lot more going on than a few missed rent payments.

Strange the boy is at his grandparents, but mom's not...  Maybe the father's parents, but where's the father during all of it?

Mentioned addiction and again. Clearly he wasn't living with her either.

I'm guessing she had a problem, got division, got homeless, that inspired his volunteer work.

My sister is homeless, but because of her addictions she's not safe to have around my child. It breaks my heart that I can't help her. I get how this kid must be feeling.

Addiction causes many grandparents having to go through it again, just as they were hoping for a quiet retirement.

She obviously has multiple problems.  The addiction may be her coping mechanism or maybe the addiction triggers the problems.  Either way, she is blessed to be in housing for a few weeks.  Hope she will accept help with sorting it all out.

I kind of wish we could do a sad and hero tag on this one. Lousy circumstance, but not many kids choose to do this kind of thing during their gap year. It's normally, "Durr... I'm going to backpack through Europe and find myself."
