Performance by Miguel

Finding a better future in Detroit

Devona Rollins, 46, has been working hard to turn her life around. She has overcome struggles with addiction, abuse and mental health troubles.

Seeking stability and opportunity for her family, Devona moved to a suburb of Detroit with her 11-year-old daughter, and her nephew and niece. She owns her own business and lives in a safe neighborhood with good schools.

But her pursuit of a better future for her family comes with challenges: she still pays more than half of her income on rent.

Make Room has created a donation page on CrowdRise to help Devona and her family.
