DENVER -- Diana Weimer of Denver is widowed and retired, and very busy raising her children.  Actually, they are her daughters children.  She is the court appointed legal guardian.

Home life was hard, but good, “In the beginning it was great.  It was a four bedroom house, plenty of room for all the kids and myself,” said Weimer.

One of the children, 6-year-old Carolina, got sick.  Their rental home had lead paint throughout, they had to move.  Soon life for the Weimer family was a series of hotels and boarding rooms, “We were homeless for 18 months,” said Weimer.

But, thanks to the Salvation Army’s Housing First program, little Carolina now has a roof over her head.  And thanks to Project Angel Tree, some presents under the Christmas tree, too.
