Single mom lives in $1,000 a month garage

In this article by yahoo, this single mom, Nicole Jones (29), who has a toddler and a second baby on the way is currently living in what used to be a single car garage!

The housing market is so horrible in Silicon Valley that she’s grateful to have this odd living space,

“I don’t want things to get worse than they already are. I barely just got into this garage, and I’m so happy to have it.”

Before living in this converted garage, Jones was homeless and living in a shelter. Losing her job during her first pregnancy made her homeless.

“I think part of the reason why I became homeless is because finding work, and day care, and transportation, and everything, it just kind of combined, made it impossible for me to keep a roof over our head.”

Silicon Valley and the Bay Area have been experiencing a skyrocketing rental market that's rapidly pricing out the working class
