Mother and daughter find home after living in a Winnebago

From living in a Winnebago to homeless no more!

A Pueblo mom and her five-year-old daughter are happy to say they've found a home.

We found out this mom has no intention of ever giving up.

A little girl can finally play in a room of her own.

"It's comfortable," said Meagan. "It's our own little space."

Little Melanie is as full of life as ever.

"She loves it," said Meagan. "She loves having her own room. She's ecstatic about it."

Meagan is just as happy because she has so much more space.

"The refrigerator is huge," said Meagan. "I can keep food in there for longer than a week."

Not only does she have a larger fridge, she also has a bigger stove, plus finally a bathroom with a shower and toilet.

This is quiet the change, after living in a run down motor home for over five years.

"I feel naked though, too, because it's so big, and I only have so much stuff," said Meagan. "I love it. With time, I'll fill it up."

Posada is paying the rent for a year, but Meagan has to come up with utilities and money for everything else, so she got a job.

She works as a flagger in road construction.

"You also have to protect the traffic, and the construction crew, and yourself," said Meagan. "You put yourself out there and direct traffic wherever it needs to go."

At home she's still getting settled in.

"I feel we deserve better, and that's what I'm working for," said Meagan.

Even though she still fears for her family's safety, she hopes that's something that gets better with time.

Meagan is still taking online college classes and says they do have furniture on the way.

It was donated to them along with many other items and money.

She says she's grateful to everyone who's helped them out.
