Maria Ester lost her home in Romeoville, Ill., in June 2007. After her husband left her and she lost her job, Ester moved into a house she could afford and put her belongings into storage.

"Since then, I’ve lived in three different places, and I’m moving again because no one will sign me a lease longer than six months," Ester said.
