This homeless mom has raised awareness of what it’s like to be asked to work from home without a home.

In a heartbreaking video, the young mom, who says she’s worked in a state job for six months, almost broke down in tears.

She said her boss had told her she could work from home one day a week after six months.

But of course, this was a major problem for her….

Because she has no home to work from.

The woman asked her boss did she have to work from home, was it a “requirement,” because “I don’t have a home.”

“I don’t have a place to work from, I can work in the office,” she told her followers.

The state worker added: “How ****** up is that that’s what we all have to deal with right now.”

She said she’d been working in a full-time state job for six months, with benefits, and yet she was still homeless.

Rent was just too high to even get started and provide a safe haven for her family.

“And I don’t believe enough people understand the gravity of the situation. I don’t think people realize where we’re at as a country,” she said.

Almost in tears – she continued to say there’s no reason someone who works full-time for the state shouldn’t have a home in that state.

This video really hurts. How can it not.
