MILWAUKEE (WITI) -- She's a single mother who lost nearly everything in a house fire in November 2013. But now, she has a new place to live -- and more.

On November 9th, a fire left Christina Wright and her two kids with no place to go.

"A couple of landlords had, I put a deposit down on a couple of places and they actually ran off with the money," said Wright.

Wright was forced to quit school. Two months went by and still no home. Then the Salvation Army and Molina Healthcare stepped in. They helped fill up her home...

"To be able to get some furniture into the house and give folks a place to sit down and a place to relax with their family and take some of the stress out," said Wright.

A new home and a fresh start for this growing Milwaukee family. It's a far cry from where they were two months ago.

Wright is going back to school at MATC -- and hopes to open her own cleaning business.

    Single mother, single mother. Why are women who have children and are divorced or never married always described as single mother? Like that automatically bestows upon her the title of saint. They NEVER do that with single fathers.
