Unemployed and no longer able to pay the rent on their previous home, Nerone crowded with her kids into a modest house owned by her mother and collected welfare for a few months. But the payments were cut off when the government determined that the children’s father was employed and thus able to support them. The big problem: the family was no longer in contact with him and he wasn’t giving them any money.
