Struggling SC mother finds place to call home

Jan 3, 2011 12:14:00 AM - thestate.com
Katie Tucker moved into her own apartment this week, the first real home her 1-year-old baby has ever known.

She had been living with family members and friends for more than a year, but a new Charleston Housing Authority program made a permanent place to live possible, just in time for Christmas.

A series of misfortunes and some personal struggles knocked down Tucker financially, and she and her baby Sydney were having a hard time getting up.

"I needed a place to live to get a job, but I needed a job to get a place to live," she said.

Now Tucker, 42, has the home, and she's confident that she will soon land a job, then make a better life for Sydney.
