A homeless single mom who struggled to make ends meet is in jail after she left her kids in her car while she went on a job interview.
Thousands Of Dollars Raised For Homeless Single Mom Who Was Jailed
Via Madamenoire reports:
The story of Shanesha Taylor has pulled the heartstrings of many after the homeless mother was arrested last week.
The single mother left her two children in her car with the windows cracked while she went on a job interview for an insurance company.
Taylor was arrested after a bystander heard her 2-year-old and six-month-old crying in the car. After her 45 minute interview, the mother was charged with two felonies of child abuse.
While many feel that Taylor was wrong to leave her children in the car, many believe that the homeless mother had no choice and was trying to provide food and security with a possible position following the interview.
According to Madame Noire, a fundraiser has been created for the mother and her children. The fundraiser crated under YouCaring.com, has raised over $50,000 for the family.
Taylor is still in jail while her children remain in protective custody.
