While activity swirls around a busy hallway, neighbor Fletter Harris, left, sits with Michelle White as she bounces her her 5-month-old granddaughter Angel Kelee White on her knee, while her daughter Keisha Grooms checks her phone at the Mosley Motel. Harris has lived at the Mosley on and off for 8 years, and White, her fiancé, daughter and granddaughter moved in about six weeks ago, after leaving a motel in Clearwater after her fiancé lost his job. "We need some help because there's not enough low-income family housing around here," said Michelle White. "And this ain't no place to raise kids."
