During the segment, Renee highlighted the systemic challenges that many parents — including herself — face in navigating resources around childcare and employment. Due to the lack of availability of full-time childcare, Renee has been forced to turn down employment opportunities that were unable to accommodate her limited schedule. At the same time, transitioning from a shelter to subsidized HomeBase housing forced her to relocate to the South Shore and leave the part-time job that she previously held.
