Homeless children in hotels are struggling to get to school, a group learned
from The Washington Post
Before a month's worth of rain fell in the nation's capital in a single hour, flooding her apartment and destroying most of her family's belongings, Christina Gaddis had a home that offered a washer and dryer and one other important comfort: She could walk her two young sons to their elementary school. Now, she and her children live in a hotel on New York Avenue that houses other homeless families, and she is dreading the commute that starts Monday, the first day of school.
