TRENTON - A mother who was arrested for living in a storage unit with her two children now has a real place to call home.
A fundraiser was organized Tuesday for Sheena Johnson, 27, and her sons, ages 5 and 10. Johnson says she was out of options when she moved into a Ewing storage unit last month.
The Big Easy restaurant collected cash and checks at the door for the single mother whose arrest for slashing her boyfriend's tires drew attention to her living situation.
"There weren't any other options," Johnson says. "I needed to get my children to and from school. I made sure that we had our meals."
Johnson was arrested and charged with two counts of child endangerment and her boys were taken into foster care.
The owner of the Big Easy, Olugbala Sababu and Danny Toto, bailed her out of jail and organized the fundraiser to help Johnson find a home.
Turning Point United Methodist Church of Trenton came forward and offered Johnson use of a home for a full year.
Johnson says she is appreciative of the community support. "Me and my boys, we have a home to go to," Johnson says. "Thank you."
