The first resident, Juquida Zigler, who was homeless with her 4-year-old daughter for much of last year, moved in Nov. 29 after a stint in jail for petty theft.

It’s all been a bit dizzying, Zigler admitted, after she joined the foundation’s leaders and local political officials to … [Read more...] about ‘Better Futures’ home gives East Bay women hope
