From afar this family looks like any other. They bake, decorate the tree and support each other. But, none of the moms living together at a Hayward home are blood-related. Instead, they say they can relate to each other’s pain. All of them are transitioning from homelessness.
Aisha Esa is 19-months sober. Three months ago she was reunited with her daughter, Lilly. This Christmas is special to them. Aisha and Lilly are starting over with a roof over their heads and building memories together.
“I wanted my daughter back in my life and I needed a home to be able to begin to recreate my life with her,” said Esa.
According to Kim Cater with the Time for Change Foundation, not every homeless mom or recovering addict is this lucky.
